Plone + TextIndexNG3 on Windows, Take 3
Started playing with Plone3, to see if the Reflecto product might address a client's desire to maintain the "Windows Way" of working with a shared file repository (as opposed to something like Enfold Desktop). More on that later, but in the meantime, I had to build TextIndexNG3 again since Zopyx has a different version for Plone3. I followed the same steps as before, but python/mingw was unable to find python24.dll. Plone ships this library in %PLONE%\Python instead of %PLONE%\Python\libs, which is where the compilation expects to find it. I couldn't figure out how to add additional library dirs, so I went the quick hack way:
Create a new directory %PLONE%\Python\libs, and copy %PLONE%\Python\*.dll into this folder. The build scripts are already looking here (even though it doesn't exist in the Plone installers), so you can just continue with the install command as specified in the TextIndexNG3 readme.
