Python install immediately fails

I had AP installed and running just fine. I d/l'ed 2715, and tried to install it after uninstalling 2714 and rebooting. I removed c:\python27 completely.

All options (Typeical, Custom and Complete) immediately exit with an error and no system changes. I d/l'ed another copy, and it is identical to the first copy.

I obtained another copy of 2714, but it likewise ends prematurely with an unknown error.

Any suggestions? There is plenty of disk space, so that's not the problem.

ActiveTcl 8.6.6 lacking documentation on many packages

I have installed the latest ActiveTcl distribution. It comes with a large number of packages, which is very nice, but the documentation for many of these packages is lacking. For instance, there is no documentation to be found on the various modules in Tcllib or Tklib.

That makes it difficult to effectively use these packages.


I have installed Perl5.24 version in my windows 64 bit machine. My code base is having MSSQL:sqllib module, can someone help me to install or get these library file.
