On Windows, when calling I am getting the error startproject mysite

Traceback (most recent call last):

File "C:\Project\IXE\Django-0.95\django\bin\", line 2, in ?

from django.core import management

ImportError: No module named core

Trying to figure it out, I noticed that the file is missing on the directories core and others, and therefore python24 skips those directories when looking for modules.

They are present as empty files in the tar.gz, but apparently winzip skips empty files.

Giuseppe, that is a bug with winzip (skipping empty files by default is not OK, try to see if there’s an option to turn that off).

Empty files for modules are a Python convention which we have no way of changing. I’m marking this as invalid.
