Windows Installer with Debug Dlls and Libs

DE
Hello,

I have a problem with python builds since some time.

On windows, it is not a good idea to link your debug build to release
builds of libs and dlls.

But python installer gives you only release builds.

So I need to build python myself, no problem, but ....

I have never managed to setup python like the way installer does. (I
guess it does some registry and env var tricks.) For example,

- it is not possible to install extensions like wxPython, because the
wxPython installer doesn't like my custom installation
- WinCVS never gets my custom python installation

and so on.

Can you give me any hints on this nasty problem ?

Thanks,

DE

I haven't tested with a debug build of wxPython, but if you use the
ActivePython distro you can get a package with the debug DLLs.

The main installer:
http://ftp.activestate.com/ActivePyt...win32-ix86.msi
The package of debug bits:
http://ftp.activestate.com/ActivePyt...ix86-debug.zip

Thanks Trent. That's good news.

Does ActivateState produce the debug package everytime they build a
python release ?

If this is a policy at ActivateState, I will feel myself on better
grounds :)

Yes, we do.
