Hi Bo,

Have you tried asking on the viewcvs list and/or the gentleman who
ported viewcvs to windows? I'm assuming that you are using the win32
port (at http://russ.hn.org/viewcvs/) from the error messages that you
posted. I've found Russ to be very helpful with getting things up and

I have installed viewcvs a couple of times on W2K server and have had
very little problems with it (certainly not at the stage that you are at

I simply did as instructed to install, ran the installation script and
it supplied these errors:

C:\download\ViewCVS\viewcvs-1.0.dev-win-r2>python viewcvs-install
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "viewcvs-install", line 36, in ?
    import viewcvs
  File "lib\viewcvs.py", line 62, in ?

    import win32popen
  File "lib\win32popen.py", line 8, in ?
    import win32process
ImportError: No module named win32process

Python 2.2 (#28, Dec 21 2001, 12:21:22) [MSC 32 bit (Intel)] on win32
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> ^Z

The second command shows that python is on path, but I don't know what
to do about the first part. I forgot to say in my original post that I
am trying to install on an XP-Pro box where I have IIS and CVSNT

So I am nowhere near setting up the IIS part, it fails right up front
at the very first command I am using.... :o(
Needless to say I know nothing about Python, haven't ever looked at a
Python source...
