I don't think you have to use the ActiveState distribution if you don't want to. What you do need are some of the Win32 python extensions. Those extensions are available here http://starship.python.net/crew/mhammond/win32/Downloads.html and you should be able to install them into your existing python environment without uninstalling anything. The reason the ActiveState distribution is recommended is that it happens to include the Win32all package along with the distribution, so it is slightly more convenient to use if you don't already have python installed. -elliot >-----Original Message----- >From: Bo Berglund [mailto:bo.berglund at telia.com] >Sent: Wednesday, December 25, 2002 9:25 AM >To: cvsnt at cvsnt.org cvsnt downloads at march-hare.com @CVSNT on Twitter CVSNT on Facebook >Subject: [cvsnt] Re: Anyone knows how to install ViewCVS?? > > >Oops, >I also want to add this: >Since Python is actually part of my build environment for WinCvs I >absolutely do not want to zap this in the process... >Will the "ActiveState" python also be compatible to WinCvs in the >build sense with VC6? > >/Bo > >On Wed, 25 Dec 2002 15:21:31 +0100, Bo Berglund ><bo.berglund at telia.com> wrote: > >>On Wed, 25 Dec 2002 14:05:56 GMT, mlaan at nospam4me.cs.vu.nl (Martijn >>Laan) wrote: >> >>>Hi, >>> >>>On Sun, 22 Dec 2002 23:24:53 +0100, Bo Berglund >>><bo.berglund at telia.com> wrote: >>>>I tried using the 1.0-r2, but got errors right up front: >>>>C:\downloads\ViewCVS\viewcvs-1.0.dev-win-r2>python viewcvs-install >>>><snip> >>> >>>Are you using ActivePython as the ViewCVS readme suggests?
