I'm cross posting this b/c I don't know where the solution will come from.
 
I've got a app that I compile with py2exe.  For various reasons I am converting it from direct ZODB access to using ZEO. 
 
To use ZEO I am calling ZODB.config.databaseFromURL() and passing in the config filename.  This function attempts to load config.xml to parse the config file I pass in.  I get the following error trace.
 
C:\hepcat>hepcatng -d1 -v
Traceback (most recent call last):

ZConfig.ConfigurationError: error opening file C:\hepcat\lib\libhepcat.zip\ZODB\config.xml
: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 'C:\\hepcat\\lib\\libhepcat.zip\\ZODB\\config.xml'
 
I have looked in ZODB\config.py and I don't see a function that won't try to load config.xml.
 
Based on that, I manually added config.xml to the zipfile library that py2exe generated and still no luck.  Any ideas on what to try?
