    setup.py seems to insist on pysqlite2 on Windows. Is this the new recommended/stable database backend, or is this still Metakit?

    With pysqlite2, I get the error pasted on http://www.bzzt.net/~arnouten/wiki/index.php/Gourmet#Current_problems. Where is the database file stored? Perhaps I still have a database of an older version there which can be removed?

      pysqlite2 is what you want to use. Metakit is effectively abandoned (since sqlite is much more common and easier to get binaries for, I don't see any reason to keep supporting metakit anyway).

      The error you're getting is related to some new development and a change in the database. You can try moving the old DB out of the way and seeing if it works. Obviously before I release the database with the updated forms, I'll make sure it properly upgrades the previous DB (in fact, it should be doing this already... if I had some more time to look into this, I would, but I'm afraid I won't be able to devote any time to Gourmet for a few days)
