Installing OPenEmm on local computer

Post by marthaj » Tue Jun 09, 2015 2:18 am

I am trying to install OpenEmm on my local computer (Windows 7) so that I may develop templates etc. for a client.
I am following the Install Guidelines OpenEmm 2013 for Windows, V1.0-20130129 instruction.
The problem is that when I execute the setup.bat, I receive the following error:

c:\openemm\bin\openemm.py line 147
except (windows error ,os Err), e:
Syntax error: invalid syntax

Can someone tell me what is wrong?
Thanks!

The script tries to create directories var, var/tmp and temp in OpenEMM's home directory, but is fails - probably due to missing permissions to create those paths.

I found one of the, problems and that was I had both Tomcat6 and Tomcat 7 installed on my local machine. Once I removed Tomcat 7, and set the Java variables for Tomcat , things improved.
However, I still had a problem with localhost:8080 - so I enabled the RPC in services. That improved things. Now I have a different problem which I will post separately.
Thank you so much for responding.
