    Just installed latest of everything - python2.4, wxPython2.6 unicode 2.6.0.0 and boa 0.4.4.

    On start up get the 'Bad Marshall Data' message when importing Views.SourceViews

    help please.

    Fairly new to python etc so don't really know what the problem might be

     
    • Hi Malcolm,

      "Bad Marshall Data" doesn't ring a bell.  Can you provide the traceback you get (I assume you get one?).

      What platform are you on?  For Windows there are a couple of point releases newer then what you have:

      # Python 2.4.1 (#65, Mar 30 2005, 09:13:57) [MSC v.1310 32 bit (Intel)]
      # wxPython 2.6.3.2, Boa Constructor 0.4.4

      I run Ansi wxPython, but the 2.6.3.2 is also available for Unicode.

      Can you run the wxPython demo without problem?

      BTW, you might also check the archive on "gmane.comp.ide.boa-constructor.user", I quickly checked but didn't see anything.

      Werner

      Ok insatlled the point releases of Python and wxPython, and Boa now starts up fine.
