[Buildbot-devel] BuildBot and Visual Studios...

Our site has been using buildbot with great success since last winter.

Our slaves build with Visual Studio 2008 on Windows Server 2003 SP2 32 bit.
Slaves are cloned vms.

The master also runs on Windows Server 2003, though there is no compelling
technical reason for placing it there.

I based our setup on the wiki noted:


There is one major pitfall I discovered related to Windows file system
permissions inherited during python egg installation that is not noted on
the wiki.

I found that I had to do all the python setup and installation as the actual
"Administrator" account, and not as another user with Administrator
otherwise the windows service would silently fail.

Running shell steps can sometimes lead to surprises with command line
parameters. Avoid spaces and special characters.

good luck!
