Hi David,

you must run Zope 2.7 with Python 2.3 and, therefore, any modules for this 
must also be for Python 2.3. When running Zope on Windows you should run 
this using runzope.bat so that you can see any errors. In addition you 
should check the debug settings in /etc/zconfig as Zope 2.7 is set up by 
default to stop if it cannot load a Product.

Regarding your choice of database. This should really be dictated by your 
application needs. However, you might like to try our mxODBCZopeDA to help 
you decide as it will work with both and is easy to set up in Windows.
