Good!  How could anything on Windows fail to work ;-)?

Not a problem:  if one person doesn't understand what they're seeing,
then at least a hundred more won't understand it either, and it's very
good to have a discussion about it archived on a public mailing list

FWIW, I don't know why Zope doesn't display anything useful in the
console anymore, and I don't even know whether that's unique to

So do I, but there's difference:  I open a DOS box and type
"bin\runzope" myself.  What I never do is use the Start menu
"shortcut".  A DOS box you open yourself stays visible even if Zope
dies ungracefully, and after the first time you type "bin\runzope" you
only have to hit two keys (up-arrow ENTER) to start it again.

Doesn't the ZMI have a "restart Zope" button?  If you open your own
DOS box, then a sloppy all-keyboard restart dance is "Ctrl+Break
up-arrow ENTER", and a careful all-keyboard restart dance is "Ctrl+C
up-arrow ENTER".  The latter gives Zope a chance to close files
gracefully, but by the same token it takes longer for Zope to shut
down.  "Ctrl+Break" kills the process instantly (and runs some risk of
leaving data in I/O buffers without writing it to disk).
