Hi,

I just finished going through HF Programming and started HF Python today. Great books so far, but I am stuck on page 41 step 3 where we are mean to be building the distribution file.

I am using Windows 7, when I open command prompt and enter:

C:\Python31\python.exe C:\Python31\nester\setup.py sdist

It returns:
running sdist
running check

warning: sdist: manifest template 'MANIFEST.in' does not exist (using default file list)

error: Templates\*.*: Access is denied

I have done a Google search and re-read the instructions and I can't figure out what is going wrong here. Any help would be very much appreciated so I can get back to the book. Thanks.

Solved. I had been opening command prompt from the start bar as opposed to opening it in the proper folder. Sorry for bugging you guys with my silly mistake.

I was just about to suggest that you need to be in the nester folder. Glad you are back on track. Hope you enjoy the rest of the book.
