OpenEV does not start because of Python error

Reported by: jratike80 Owned by: osgeo4w-dev@…
Priority: major Component: Package
Version: Keywords: OpenEV



I installed OpenEV with the OSGeo4W installer today but it does not start. The error is


OSGEO4W home is C:\OSGeo4w
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\OSGeo4w\apps\openev\pymod\", line 80, in <module>
    import gviewapp

    def set_policy(self, as, ag, autos):
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

I see the same problem, but only if I run openev.bat within C:\OSGeo4W\bin. If I run it somewhere else, I get proper behavior. I believe that is because if you run it from within the bin directory the local DLLs take precidence over other special version DLLs required by OpenEV. I don't forsee an easy way to fix this.

On that basis I'm going to tentatively close this ticket, but I'm open to suggestions.

Well, perhaps the main problem is then that OSGeo4W installer creates me a shortcut that looks like this

"C:\Windows\system32\ " C:\OSGeo4w\bin\openev.bat

Because the shortcut did not work I tried to run the batch file directly with the result I reported earlier
