Hi there,

Selecting MapFish, OSGeo4W installer just creates folders with several installers on:


Besides that I believe you are on your own. Is that right?

But I found instructions on how to install MapFish on a OSGeo4W environment at:


That doesn't look to be in sync with current settings on the installer. It doesn't use the downloaded installer from 
'apps\mapfish_framework-1.0' but it downloads from the MapFish trunk. Developer-instruction != User-Instruction of 

But following the instructions I got stuck on that error:

E:\OSGeo4W\apps\mapfish_framework\server\python>easy_install dist/mapfish-1.2dev-py2.5.egg
Processing mapfish-1.2dev-py2.5.egg
removing 'e:\osgeo4w\apps\python25\lib\site-packages\mapfish-1.2dev-py2.5.egg' (and everything under it)
creating e:\osgeo4w\apps\python25\lib\site-packages\mapfish-1.2dev-py2.5.egg
Extracting mapfish-1.2dev-py2.5.egg to e:\osgeo4w\apps\python25\lib\site-packages
mapfish 1.2dev is already the active version in easy-install.pth

Installed e:\osgeo4w\apps\python25\lib\site-packages\mapfish-1.2dev-py2.5.egg
Processing dependencies for mapfish==1.2dev
error: Installed distribution simplejson 2.0.5 conflicts with requirement simplejson>=2.0.8

I tried easy_install with "-D" to delete conflictings packages but that didn't help.

Does anybody have a clue of what would be the solution for that?
