Good and bad news.
Good news first: I can build the windows installer from the latest
Bad news: If I run the produced installer, I get the identical traceback as
### For the record, here's my work-log again:
o Donloaded latest CVS-version of IPython into
o Try to make a binary installer using the post-install script:
"python setup.py bdist_wininst
- Everything seems fine, i.e. binary installer gets produced, no
produced by the script. - Saved logfile as ipython_bdist_20040614.log.
o Install the self-created IPython-0.6.1.cvs.win32.exe
- Follow the instructions in "Upgrading from a previous version" and verify
that the directory C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\Viktor
o Installation failed w/ the following traceback:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "D:\Python23\Scripts\ipython_win_post_install.py", line 126, in ?
File "D:\Python23\Scripts\ipython_win_post_install.py", line 86, in run
File "D:\Python23\lib\shutil.py", line 100, in copytree
names = os.listdir(src)
WindowsError: [Errno 3] Das System kann den angegebenen Pfad nicht
*** run_installscript: internal error 0xFFFFFFFF ***
o De-Install Python-0.6.1.cvs
- A similar traceback than above occured. Again it couldn't be copied,
I verified it line by line. - It is identical to the one above,
very last line "*** run_installscript: internal error 0xFFFFFFFF ***"
which is missing.
- De-installation succeeded partially, i.e. it removed the
directory D:\Python23\Lib\site-packages\IPython\ but did not remove
- Delete the directories C:\Programme\IPython.
### End of work-log.
I'll try myself to dig deeper into this issue too, but don't hold your
