  • Ubuntusers Wiki "virtualenv" - “Seit Python 3.3 ist ein Modul zum Erzeugen einer virtuellen Pythonumgebung auch direkt Python enthalten, das Modul heißt venv”.


  • Virtualenv on Windows, Error message
    File "C:\Python27\lib\site-packages\", line 1576, in resolve_interpreter
        python_versions = get_installed_pythons()
      File "C:\Python27\lib\site-packages\", line 93, in get_installed_pythons

  • The expected Windows registry structure is, according to “”, like this: “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE / Software / Python / PythonCore / 2.7 / ...”.
  • On the special machine, a formerly installed Python 3.3 was not properly deinstalled, i.e. there was a Windows registry structure “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE / Software / Python / PythonCore / 3.3 / ...” but not all expected subdirectories of “3.3” were implemented, so that the parsing of the Windows registry failed.
  • Solution: Use the Windows tool “RegEdit” to delete the whole key of “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE / Software / Python / PythonCore / 3.3”.

  • Stack Overflow "pip issue installing almost any library" - “The easiest workaround is to downgrade pip to one that doesn't use SSL: easy_install pip==1.2.1. This loses you the security benefit of using SSL. The real solution is to use a Python distribution linked to a more recent SSL library”.
  • Warning: Once, on Windows, the default DNS server was set to an inproper value ( i.e. not to the IP of the “default gateway” = the local DSL router ). Though it looked as if most network functions worked, by this, “easy_install” failed to install anything, with the error message ( taking the fictive package “test” as example, it does not matter if the package really exists ):
Searching for test
easy_install : Download error on [Errno 11001] getaddrinfo failed -- Some 
packages may not be found!
Couldn't find index page for 'test' (maybe misspelled?)

Scanning index of all packages (this may take a while)
Download error on [Errno 11001] getaddrinfo failed -- Some packages may not be found!

No local packages or download links found for test

error: Could not find suitable distribution for Requirement.parse('test')

  • The only option to download and install the free SDK for Python is at “Help / SDK / Download Python SDK” in the “winIDEA Open” application :-), by which the download of e.g., is started.
  • According to iSYSTEM staff members in 2015-07, the Python SDK is the most requested SDK by the customers.
    • Due to this success, it is expected that this SDK will be available with further commercial and also free editions :-).
    • I was told by experts, that the number of shipped examples with the SDKs differs. As the Python SDK is so successful, it is shipped with the highest amount of example scripts.
  • Advice: Develop your scripts with Python 3.
    • Python 2.7 is still supported,
    • but the shipped examples were now converted to Python 3, lately.
  • The IDE “winIDEA” is shipped with “daqIDEA” ( “Data AcQuisition IDEA” ), a tool for graphic representation of large data sets acquired by winIDEA. See ”./daqIDEA/daqIDEA.docx”.

Zope, Django

  • In the early 2000ths, the only job offers in Germany for Python developers were about building websites & web applications using using Zope. Many/most processed projects were based on Plone, the most successfull application built with Zope. As the years passed by, a kind of “Zope” ecosystem was created, generating successful “Plone service providers”.
  • Since late 2000th / early 2010th, it might be that a similar ecosystem for “Django” is under construction.
