[IronPython] Trouble building 0.7.5

I had planned to install version 0.7.5; however, this requires the .NET 2.0
beta 2 which requires the Windows Installer 3.0 which requires XP SP2 which
our corporate IT department has not yet "released" for installation.

Any ideas? (I currently plan to utilize 0.7.4.)

Thanks for all the great work!

IronPython-0.7.5 requires .NET 2.0 beta 2 (or later).  I'm sorry that we
didn't catch this sooner and at the very least made this prominent in the
release notes.  We should also modify the config file so that a nice error
will be produced if you try to run on an earlier version.  I suspect your
error is the compile-time equivalent of the other bugs reported running
0.7.5 on 2.0 beta 1.

This change was accidental and not a deliberate attempt to force people to
upgrade; nevertheless, at this stage of the project I suspect that more of
this sort of thing will happen from time to time.  That's part of the price
of 0.7.x software.  We'll try to at least give you better warning in the

If you're running on Windows, I STRONGLY encourage you to upgrade to .NET
2.0 beta 2.  A ton of bugs have been fixed and this is a much higher quality
release as we get closer to RTM.  If you're running on a different CLI
implementation I'd like to know if there were things that you could do with
0.7.4 that were broken by 0.7.5.  I can't promise a quick fix, but I'd like
to at least investigate any issues to see if there's something we could do.

Thanks - Jim

I encounter an error when building 0.7.5 (earlier version build fine)
'IronPython.Objects.Dict.IEnumerable.GetEnumerator()': containing type does
not implement interface 'System.Collections.IEnumerable''; File:Dict.cs;
Line: 189
'IronPython.Objects.CustomDict.IEnumerable.GetEnumerator()': containing type
does not implement interface 'System.Collections.IEnumerable'; File:Dict.cs;
Is this unique to me?
