How to install GASP on Windows

Asked by Tovim on 2008-08-04

The question "How to install gasp on Windows" has not been solved for me yet.
Well, I have my python-2.5.2 in ActivePython installed.
I have downloaded and installed pygame into ActivePython´s site-packages via pygame~.msi installer.
I have downloaded and uzipped gasp-0.2.0-b1 folder.
My question is: what am I to do now to install gasp on my XP Home OS ?
Thank you very, very much in advance.

I am sorry, I still need your explanation.
I´ve put the gasp_0.2.0_b1 folder into the site-packages of ActivePython like a towel into a wardrobe. Nothing happened, of course.
In the second try I´ve put the gasp folder into the Temp folder and localised the directory with
cd d:\Temp\gasp_0.2.0_b.1 and wrote a command:
python setup.py install.
Which led to the ImportError: No module named setuptools.
When I opened setup.py in a PyScripter, it was really standing there: from setuptools import setup.
No "setuptools" file or directory can I find in my computer.
Please, tell me what can I do?

Personally, I havn't used activepython. the developers don't test it.

The reccomended way to get python is via http://python.org/download/

Hi, ActivePython should´nt be any problem. It is only a wraper about Python. I can easily get tools from pygame, kTinker. ... via ActivePython. Everything but gasp.

you can get setuptools from http://pypi.python.org/pypi/setuptools/
use setuptools and then install

Hurrah! My way to a successful installation of GASP on my Windows:
1) I am running ActivePython (D:\ActivePython), which I am able to start from the (cmd.exe) command line.
2) I have downloaded "setuptools-0.6c8.win32-py2.5.exe" (http://pypi.python.org/pypi/setuptools) and "gasp_0.20_b1" into my D:\Temp folder
3) Performing "setuptols" installation: Start > Run > Browse --> D:\Temp\setuptools ~ py2.5.exe. OK. This uploads "easy_install.exe" file into D:\ActivePython\Scripts
4) This file must be made possible to run from a command line by setting "Scripts" folder to PATH system variable - see "http:// ~ setuptools, The EasyInstall user´s guide, Windows Notes".
5) Now am I ready to install gasp by:
 a) openning cmd.exe command line and setting directory (in D:\ >) cd \Temp\gasp_0.2.0_b1
 b) inserting command "setup.py install"
 c) Bingo! There folows 48 pages of traceback (which can be copied into a file) and GASP is installed.
- - -
 Maybe the fourth item does not to be executed. I did it because I tried to install a "gasp-0.4.5-py2.5.egg" file, which I have downloaded from somewhere some day in May. The installation was successful, but gasp did´nt work.
Thank you all very much, Tovim
