Python Installer


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:


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!!
