Hi. Insights/suggestions please ......

I've successfully installed Oracle8i client and
ZOracleDA on other boxes running NT4 and happily
use Zope + ZOracle DA as an NT service. 

But can't reproduce I my success under W2K .....

I _can_ get things to work if I start Zope from the
command line (having created a system variable
PYTHONPATH to point to the Oracle DLLs) on W2K.

I _can't_ get things to work as a Service on W2K. In Event Viewer
I see:

Event Type:	Information
Event Source:	PythonService
Event Category:	None
Event ID:	255
Date:		05/07/2002
Time:		07:02:35
User:		N/A
Computer:	IS-WEBZ
The description for Event ID ( 255 ) in Source ( PythonService ) cannot be
found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information
or message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. The
following information is part of the event: Starting Zope..

If I delete ZOracleDA from the Products folder then the Zope
instance fires up as service no problem. So, it seems that
ZOracleDA is definitely part of the problem ......

Latest stable versions of everything in use.
