@Scott when you were writing
I can run python (2.7.12) interactively on the laptop okay. I can start KA-Lite okay.
…I thought you were already running it from command line.
There is no KAlite anything in the PATH.
This is true, the Python Scripts dir isn’t automatically added to the path. If you do
cd c:\Python27\Scripts before, then there’s a
kalite command in that directory.
I have been working on this for 16 hours. I bought the most
recommended laptop for Education from the largest education laptop
vendor (Dell), an Education Latitude 3180. It comes with Windows 10
Pro, the only OS available for this laptop. It has the most current
Microsoft Update, the “Creative” update. Has KA-Lite been tested on
Windows 10 Pro, Creative edition?" This is a completely stock machine
with no other software loaded except what comes from Dell. I must be an
idiot. :O( I’m trying to set up this machine for NY State prisons.
You are doing nothing wrong here, but unfortunately, things that work on other Windows versions seems to have issues on Windows 10.
As I mentioned before, the System Applications error log indicated the problem came from python.exe executing module _hashlib.pyd.
I’m sorry but it’s difficult with this particular error since it’s about a library that AFAIK isn’t used while starting up the server. It’s a core library of Python though. By running KA Lite from command line, we might get more output:
To stop it again, run
kalite stop in the same command line. If you find errors in
logs/django.log, those would be helpful.
Thanks for taking your time! I’m sorry that it’s not just plug and play for you
