was able to download apt-offline.zip at home from ?sp Aeolith and also installed on Linux.

Problem: After unzipping the package on the Windows Computer there is only one Python File in the root.

If I run setup.py -or- setup.py build -or- setup.py install i get the same error message:

Please go to control panel to install and configure system components.

I am a little lost here and pretty much all sites related to app-offline are blocked at work.

Does anyone have any idea what system components are being talked about?

Or, how to install and configure them.

Running WinXP sp3 with Python 2.7.2 and wxPython installed. Am I missing a dependency?

Thanks!

Site is blocked.

Discovered a little fact about Windows, to my chagrin, just because you can click on a Python file and it will run...

Doen't mean that you can run the file from a Command Line, doh!

Copied the contents of the zip file (extracted of course) to my Python 2.7.2 directory and *then* the Setup Build and setup Install worked. Doh!

Update: app-offline requires the PyQt install appropriate to your version of Python on Windows. This can be downloaded from: http://www.riverbankcomputing.co.uk/.../pyqt/download Scroll Down to the Installer packages and select the correct one for the version of Python your are running.

apt-offline 1.1 currently has a small bug when running in Windows. We got past the initial bug only to find out that the method he is using to access the Internet is Blocked on my machine. Even though I can get the files by copy and pasting the URL's into IE.

We're working the problem.
