Fast-forward to 2008
I installed Python 3.0b2 on a Windows Vista laptop (after having
previously installed Python 2.5), and I am getting this same error:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "Programming\Python\monkeys.py", line 24, in <module>
File "Programming\Python\monkeys.py", line 21, in test_parse
File "C:\Python30\lib\xml\sax\__init__.py", line 30, in parse
parser = make_parser()
File "C:\Python30\lib\xml\sax\__init__.py", line 90, in make_parser
raise SAXReaderNotAvailable("No parsers found", None)
xml.sax._exceptions.SAXReaderNotAvailable: No parsers found
I see a pyexpat.lib in the C:\Python30\libs folder.
I also see a pyexpat.pyd in the C:\Python30\DLLs folder.
It works in Python 2.5. I installed Python 3.0b2 as admin.
Does anyone know what is wrong and how to fix it?
