Re: Zim building problems


Did you install all of the requirements listed in the Windows
build readme?https://raw.githubusercontent.com/jaap-karssenberg/zim-desktop-wiki/master/windows/README-BUILD-win32.txt
Silly question: do you think the folder name
"MyCode.Source\Source.Upload" might have anything to do with it? Having
periods in the name SHOULDN'T be a problem, but you never know with old
broken systems like GTK2.
I can't be sure from your debug log, so I'm just checking: Did you run
windows/build_win32.py with the project root folder being the current
working folder? Did that script display any errors?
