[Zope-DB] Summary: Problem installing zodbca ODBC driver
Wed, 21 May 2003 11:14:54 -0700
I have achieved success, thanks to the kind support of the members of this
list. Here is a summary of what worked for me:
Larry McDonnell was kind enough to e-mail a copy of the
ZODBCDA-3.1.0b2-win32-py21.tgz file that he had successfully installed on a
similarly configured workstation.
I installed this file using WinZip V8.0 with the option "TAR file smart
CR/LF conversion" turned on.
I then started Zope (running as a service).
When I inspected the Zope Control_Panel|Products folder, I saw ZODBCDA as an
"Installed Product". When I inspected the Add objects drop down widget, I
saw a "Z ODBC Database Connection" as an entry on the list.
Thanks to everyone for their help, and my apologies for my rant on Open
Source vs Proprietary tools.

Subject: [Zope-DB] Problem installing zodbca ODBC driver
I am a ZOPE newbie, so please have patience with me.
Yesterday I installed Zope on my MSWin2K workstation, using the
Zope-2.6.1-win32-x86.exe installation file from zope.org. It seems to be
running as expected. Here is the version info from the Zope Control_Panel
(Zope 2.6.1 (binary release, python 2.1, win32-x86), python 2.1.3, win32)
2.1.3 (#35, Apr 8 2002, 17:47:50) [MSC 32 bit (Intel)]
I tried to install the ZODBCA ODBC driver, which I also downloaded from
zope.org. The installation seemed to have gone properly, with the files
ending up in:
I was expecting to be able to add a ODBC object from the Add widget in the
root folder. I did not see any appropriate entry to do this.
In the Zope Control_Panel|Products|ZODBCDA tree, I see the following:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:\PROGRA~1\SandBox\lib\python\OFS\Application.py", line 541, in

File "C:\PROGRA~1\SandBox\lib\python\Products\ZODBCDA\db.py", line 86, in
from sql import *
ImportError: DLL load failed: Access is denied.
The ZODBC download page on zope.org states that I need to use the proper
version. Just to be safe, I have tried both version 3.1.0b2 files (deleting
the installation directory between installs.
Thanks in advance for any insight about what I need to do differently.
