Python Installer

1 New Member

I downloaded the OpenEMM (Linux & Windows) to install.

The Windows version uses Python as the Installer and the programmer for this installer made some bad assumptions about the installations.

I posted a run-down of the install problems at:

http://www.openemm.org/forums/viewtopic.php?p =2101#2101

First bad assumption was that all installs would be on the "C:" drive. This prefaces and leads to all the other problems in the install code.

Second bad assumption is that this is native AMP (Apache, MySQL & PHP) install, so Reg Key in the Windows registry will look for standard naming.

My machine uses Wamp, which is successfully installed, but Wamp does not use the same key names in the Windows Registry that Apache, MySQL and PHP (AMP) use, therefore the programmer needed a list, not a single text string to use for searching in the registry. This also would apply to persons using WinAmp as their chosen AMP install tool for Windows.

I know absolutely nothing about Python, but know enough other languages (25) that I thought I would try to muddle through this to solve these problems, but right now too busy so could use some assistance.

All help here greatly appreciated!!

Hi, are there any guidelines about what to do if a Windows extension for Python 2.4 requires the C++ runtime (msvcp71.dll)? If I want to distribute a binary installer of an extension that contains C++ code, should I really include the msvcp71.dll in the package? It doesn't sound like a good idea to me if every package places another copy of this dll somewhere in the Python directory. Python 2.4 does install the C runtime (msvcr71.dll)...

Hi. Thank you Gordon McMillan for a very nice freeze tool for python. (I use it on Windows XP SP2 for creating a single-file self-extracting wxPython based installation script for a non-python application.) Recently I upgraded to python 2.4, and on my system any .exe file generated by the installer crashes immediately after startup. I use version 6a2 of the installer.

Python 2.4 is built with Microsoft Visiual C++ 7. This means that it uses msvcr7.dll, which *isn't* a standard part of the windows operating system. This means that if you build a windows installer using distutils - it *requires* msvcr7.dll in order to run. This is true even if your package is a pure python package. This means that when someone tries to use a windows installer created with Python 2.4, on a machine with only python 2.3 - it...

I've installed several different versions of Python across several different versions of MS Windows, and not a single time was the Python directory or the Scripts subdirectory added to the PATH environment variable. Every time, I've had to go through and add this by hand, to have something resembling a usable Python installation. No such problems on Linux, whether it be Mandrake/Mandriva, Fedora Core, or Kubuntu. So why is the Windows...
