c2.transform.msoffice Installation

  • When you’re reading this you have probably already run easy_install c2.transform.msoffice. Find out how to install setuptools (and EasyInstall) here:

  • Get pythonproducts and install it via:

    python install --home /path/to/instance

    into your Zope instance.

  • Create a file called c2.transform.msoffice-configure.zcml in the /path/to/instance/etc/package-includes directory. The file should only contain this:

    <include package="c2.transform.msoffice" />

Alternatively, if you are using zc.buildout and the plone.recipe.zope2instance recipe to manage your project, you can do this:

  • Add c2.transform.msoffice to the list of eggs to install, e.g.:

    eggs =
  • Tell the plone.recipe.zope2instance recipe to install a ZCML slug:

    recipe = plone.recipe.zope2instance
    zcml =
  • Re-run buildout, e.g. with:

    $ ./bin/buildout

You can skip the ZCML slug if you are going to explicitly include the package from another package’s configure.zcml file.
