That sounds like a really bad idea. From the Zope 2.5.1 release notes: * Zope requires Python 2.1 (Python 2.2 is currently *not* supported) You should NOT assume that warning was put there for no reason :-) Also, there's not a whole lot of expertise in this community on building for Windows; we seem to be a linux/unix-heavy crowd. You'd better stick to the binary releases and not mess with them, unless you can find a bona-fide expert to help you. Anyone? :-) Meanwhile you might try migrating a *copy* of your Data.fs to Zope first to Zope 2.6.4 (still uses Python 2.1.x) and then to Zope 2.7.7 (uses Python 2.3.x). FWIW I recall 2.5 to 2.6 being a painless upgrade. I think 2.7 was a little more involved. The most likely problem to watch out for is security-related issues: your code might accidentally rely on a security weakness that was subsequently tightened, so you get permission denied at unexpected times until your code and/or configuration is fixed. Install and turn on VerboseSecurity, it's a big help with things like that. -- Paul Winkler http://www.slinkp.com _______________________________________________ Zope maillist - Zope@zope.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev )
