New submission from Juha Rantanen <juha.rantanen at iki.fi>:
1. Create Windows installer with Python 2.5 from attached project.
2. Install it with Python 2.6.1.
3. The post-installer will fail with error message:
*** run_installscript: internal error 0xFFFFFFFF ***
The code causing this is:
and the actual error is:
DLL load failed: The specified module could not be found.
File "<string>", line 6, in windows_binary_install
File "c:\apps\python26\lib\socket.py", line 46, in <module>
If the installer is created with Python 2.6.1, it works fine.
The problem was noticed in the Robot Framework project and the issue can
be found from http://code.google.com/p/robotframework/issues/detail?id=196.
This problem was first asked as part of issue
http://bugs.python.org/issue4566, but Martin v. Löwis recommended to
open new issue for this.
