Just as a note: what you describe is installing moin2 (the pre-alpha
unreleased development version). That's fine if you want the bleeding
edge stuff, but don't use this for production (but 1.9.7).

Also, if you refer to it, please use "moin2", so people clearly see what
it is about.

Looks like it is not in the search path. Did you activate the virtualenv
in THAT cmd window? Did you cd into the moin-2.0 directory?

Sounds correct. That's also how it is documented, right?

Strange, Roger Haase developed that stuff and used it personally.

I personally don't use Windows, so maybe we should just ask him (email).

I suspect that there is either a PATH issue or the script (BAT/CMD) for
windows is not created or ...

Is there a moin.cmd or moin.bat somewhere on your disk (likely inside
the virtual env) that was created by the installation procedure?
