Python setuptools bootstrap errors
I ran into some errors installing py-dom-path 0.1 into my Win32 Python 2.7 installation. Here are the errors and their resolution.
The installation command I used was:
C:\...\python.exe C:\...\py-dom-xpath-0.1\setup.py install
First, running in a corporate environment, the bootstrap script failed to access the network to download setuptools.
I needed to set an environment variable with the HTTP proxy details.
Old version of bootstrap script
ez_setup.py bootstrap script included in py-dom-path 0.1 is out of date. It referenced an old version of setuptools that was no longer available:
urllib2.HTTPError: HTTP Error 404: Not Found
I downloaded the latest version of the bootstrap script, placed it in the source directory and ran the installation again, this time with no problems.
