No, the os.chdir() call crashes the 2.3 post installer. So we _have_ to avoid it.
My win32 laptop screen turned on today, so I did a bit more testing. The
situation seems to be, with ipython 0.6.10 for win32 binary, assuming a
machine with both python 2.3 and 2.4 installed:
- installing for 2.3 works perfectly. No crashes, no problem.
- installng for 2.4 crashes at the end (MS traceback). NO shortcuts are
created, though ipython itself does install correctly. I tested this by using
a shortcut from the 2.3 install and modifying the path, and it works
perfectly. This binary crash occurs regardless of whether the installer is
run from the C: drive or from a different one.
I am pretty much sure that the bug is in python 2.4, since this occurs running
the _same_ binary installer (made under linux with bdist_wininst).
Argh. This is really frustrating.
