OK - first such snapshot done. See the link from starship.python.net/crew/mhammond
This version installs no shortcuts, does not compile .pyc files etc - you are pretty much on your own. Pythonwin\start_pythonwin.pyw is installed to start Pythonwin, but you must do so manually.
Please let me know if you try it.
I tried it. I'd say something useful, except as far as I could tell, it worked <wink>. Thanks! Have you talked w/ the PBF about getting builds tested?
FYI, the current PLabs Python uninstaller arranges to delete .pyc and .pyo files via these WISE lines in the installer:
Add "File Tree: %MAINDIR%*.pyc" to INSTALL.LOG Add "File Tree: %MAINDIR%*.pyo" to INSTALL.LOG
These arrange to (recursively) delete all .pyc and .pyo files at uninstall time, and "do the right thing": any directories left empty at the end are magically removed.
