Komodo IDE 7.1.2 can't find libraries

IDE 7.1.2 had been working correctly, but as of 25 Sept 2012 was no longer able to find some Perl libraries (DBI, most importantly). See the attached screen cap. I mention the date in case the behavior change might relate to a Microsoft update. I use Microsoft Security Essentials as my antivirus app.

The compilation failure also occurred when I tried to run the script in a console window, when Komodo was not running.

I uninstalled IDE 7 and installed a fresh copy of IDE 6.1.3. Now my scripts compile and run correctly.

Tkx getOpenFile dialog box on Windows 7

Has anyone seen an issue using the getOpenFile dialog box on Windows7 when selecting a file from one of the "Libraries"?

In our program we utilize this dialog for users to select certain .txt files. However, on windows 7, when the dialog opens, if you navigate to the top of the directory tree you'll see a "Libraries" "directory" that you can select. If the user selects a .txt file from one of these "library" directories, the perl interpreter completely stops and crashes.

Installation - Chrome reports Komodo Edit "malicious"

After downloading the Komodo Edit 7.1.2 installer, Chrome blocks the download, saying it is "malicious". A security warning has to be overriden in order to install the software.

I don't know if signing the executable would help, but it would certainly be good practice. Looks like has wound up on some blacklist, anyway.

Komodo Sync not working

Komodo IDE, version 7.1.2, build 73175, platform win32-x86.
Built on Sat Aug 18 00:39:39 2012.

I'm setting up a new computer to replace my current one, and was hoping to use Komodo Sync to, well, sync my Komodo configurations, but it doesn't appear to be working. I'm wondering if there's something I don't "get"...

When a perl script use MongoDB modules, perlapp generate exe can't execuate!

I have a perl script, it named and it used mongodb mudules

#!/usr/bin/perl -w
use strict;
use MongoDB;

use MongoDB::Database;
# mongodb
print "mongo";

execute "perl" is ok,no problem.
But i use PDK-Pro's tool perlapp compile it to mongo.exe,
my command:

perlapp --shared public --norunlib --gui --force --exe mongo.exe

can't execute!
the error message:

Python Komodo not finding XML module


I am running this command in the Komodo editor, first line in the file:

import xml.etree.cElementTree as et

This command is code-completed by Komodo but then when I run it in Komodo, it says:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:\tmp\", line 1, in
import xml.etree.cElementTree as et
File "C:\tmp\", line 1, in
import xml.etree.cElementTree as et
ImportError: No module named etree.cElementTree

This works fine in the Python interpreter on the same system. Why is it not found by Komodo at run time?

Thanks, David Lynch

Location of Help Files (Windows)

Hi there,

Wondering if anyone would know the location of the help files. The reason for the question is that I'd like to print the manual to a PDF in order to read it on a Kindle DX. I've found a link to a downloadable version of the manual for Komodo 6, but not for Komodo 7.

The Komodo help function looks a lot like a Windows chm, but not quite. Using Calibre, chm files are quite easy to convert to mobi or epub, and that can be a nice way to read a manual. I wonder if the Komodo help files might also be easy to convert.

Update could not be installed - Komodo Edit 7.1.2

Every time I start Komodo Edit I receive an error "The update could not be installed. Please make sure there are no other copies of Komodo Edit running.. ".

I tried deleting and re-installing. I had ActivePython 3 and 2 and removed version 2. I also change the setting app.update.enabled to false, but the error persists.

How can I resolve this please? I have other editors on my computer but I'm assuming that they wouldn't interfere with Komodo Edit. Andy.

Perl syntax check using Linux VM

With the release of Edit 7 I was hoping I could finally get syntax checking working on my setup - Win7 with ActivePerl 5.12, and all development work done on a Debian6 VM with its linux perl libs mapped to a Windows drive. Problem seems to be conflicts between Windows Perl and the linux Perl libs:

List::Util object version 1.23 does not match bootstrap parameter 1.25 at C:/Perl64/lib/ line 224.
Compilation failed in require at N:/perl5/lib/perl5/i486-linux-gnu-thread-multi/Scalar/ line 11.

Frequently Used Files in Toolbox?

Hello there,

Hope you're all having a fun weekend.
The documentation for 7.1 says:
"Use the Toolbox sidebar to manage and store Komodo components (for example, frequently used files"

I have tried a hundred ways, but not managed to add shortcuts to files (or folders) in the toolbox. Apparently in earlier versions there was something called "Open Shortcuts", but that seems to have disappeared.
