Python Portable 2.6 Development Test 1

Application: Python
Category:Programming
Description: Python is an easy to learn programming language, used by many big companies such as NASA. Python is capable of doing many things from web development to linux download managers. Although it was originally portablised by tanisthalon, I ended up taking over this.

Download Python Portable 2.6 Development Test 1 [16.6 MB download / 54.7 MB installed]
(MD5: 3a6c427f955f86279938d810aa5b798c)

Release Notes:

2.6 Development Test 1 (2008-11-11): Initial release

fixed minor problem regarding the HOME directory and included the pywin32 addon.

Development Test 2 (2008-11-21): Initial release

Added a launcher for IDLE.
Why do I start at Dev Test 2, you ask? Because tanisthalon already did Dev Test 1 Eye
Note: thanks to tanisthalon for letting me take over this, and OliverK for Generator.

Ok somethings I found are that the IDLE launcher doesn't work at all but the Commandline launcher does, for the Operating system I've tested it using Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 and Windows XP Pro SP3

A bit offtopic

Please note that some Apps, for example Blender, need a specific version of Python to function. In that case it's not use Python x.x or higher.

He's just saying that if your using a program like Blender (thats python based) it's looking for a certain version of python and possibly will not work with the newer version

win32

posted this on the dev test 1, since tanisthalon doesn't maintain it anymore I'll ask here..

Has anyone been able to get the win32 module to work portably? Copying from installation isn't enough.

link? google isn't being very helpful with this one. on a side note, when the win32 module works i'll update python to 2.6.

Should have used the complete

Should have used the complete package name, pywin32. Here it is: http://sourceforge.net/projects/pywin32/
Checked the installation process, it installs atleast 2 dlls to system32:
Copied pythoncom25.dll to C:\WINDOWS\system32\pythoncom25.dll
Copied pywintypes25.dll to C:\WINDOWS\system32\pywintypes25.dll
on a local install there's also python25.dll in the same directory, but i guess that's a dll belonging to python itself.

new version. it has pywin32 installed on it as well as Python 2.6, but if there's problems don't hesitate to ask.

Thanks, but it doesn't seem to work. Did a clean install and importing pywintypes and/or win32api fails (even if python 2.6 and pywin32 is installed locally)

pywintypes, pythoncom and win32api

I don't manage to import the modules too. I haven't found any solution...perhaps with the next release ... 3.0?

Here's an idea...

Try placing the modules somewhere that Python can find them. (Eg: <PythonDir>, <PythonDir>\DLLs, etc...)

P.S: <PythonDir> is shorthand for the Python install folder.

I'm using 2.6. It happens when you use File>Open... to open a .py file in IDLE. It leaves the folder wherever you opened the .py file from.

EDIT: I can't reprduce it today. I'm now assuming it was my own mistake with a local Python install. Sorry about that.

Scite problem

I would like to shift the portablepython to StickDriveLetter:\PortableApps\PortablePython1.0\App to avoid the pile of icons on PA menu. I cannot get scite work when I leave it there! How do I separate Scite and put it in different place StickDriveLetter:\PortableApps

Help!

wrong package. by the looks

wrong package. by the looks of it, you're using PortablePython, whereas this is Python Portable. it would be best to post your question to their discussion group at http://groups.google.com/group/portablepython?lnk=srg

Why not?

Why don't you merge these two approaches into one?

64 bit version?

It appears that the 32 bit IDLE has been known for not working on 64 bit Windows (vista, server 2008 etc). It would be great if a 64 bit version of paf can be built for testing. Thanks in advance.

Work together?

Hi there,

here I come with my "let's work together" story again Smiling

I'm author and maintainer of the PortablePython.com and I just released Portable Python 1.1 with support for Python 2.5.4, Python 2.6.1 and Python 3.0.1.

Also bunch of packages (wxPython, Django, pyWin32, PIL, VPython, PyGame, NumPy, SciPy, IPython, etc etc) are included. Also some of the best free Python editors are included - SPE and PyScripter. You can find latest release with full list of packages here: http://www.PortablePython.com

My next target is making Portable Python to be compatible with PortableApps.com suite and I already made some progress in that area. If you people would like to help on this please let me know.

If you have any ideas/suggestions or you would like to see some specific Python library/application in the next release of the Portable Python, visit Portable Python Google group (http://groups.google.com/group/portablepython) and leave your comment there.

and most important - keep pythoning!

Sure, I'm open to work with you. Some other things are popping up and causing interruptions with development, so it would be great to have more than one dev. on to this.

Any progress

It's been a while and I was just wondering if there has been any progress on getting PortablePython into the portable apps format?

Leaves data behind

The Python scripter leaves a folder in %APPDATA%\PyScripter.

Problem?

I downloaded and am making sure there are no issues. But when I downloaded and installed this onto my flashdrive the Trojan virus Artemis was detected and dealt with. It was found in the program, the computer i'm on is ok but can someone check the download?

Artemis

Artemis isn't a virus, by the way. It's McAfee's heuristic antivirus scanner. It basically looks at files that don't have known viruses in them (after McAfee has scanned them and called them clean) and tries to guess if maybe that file could possibly have a virus it hasn't seen before. It gets this part wrong. A lot.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
