Thanks, Uli. Also thanks for reposting to the list. It was my mistake.

I successfully (but reluctantly) installed grokproject on the installed
python (i.e. without the virtual environment). I wonder what will break with
my other python/zope applications.

The Python I am using is the MS Windows installable version 2.5.4
