Thank you for this report. Reminds me I should boot Windows from time to time, if just to test Pythoscope. ;-)

First two failures and the crash at the end are related to the fixture module we use, and may not be Pythoscope errors in itself. Anyway, we should investigate. This is directly related to

I fact error 3 looks a lot like the result from trying to run pythoscope a
second time on iTrade (minus the itrade_logging module).
That is: after a project.pickle has been created.

I've attached the log for such attempt to this mail.

For the first 2 errors, it looks like the tmp_fixture_xxx directories were
never created for those cases.

Fixes related to different path separator on Windows has been committed to trunk in r260.

There are still 3 test cases failing, and the cause is the fixture module. Since this is a bigger thing, I prepared a blueprint for this change ( and I will work on this later this week.

Thanks for the fix.

I agree that the first 2 errors are caused by the fixture module
but I think the 3rd error (pickle) may have a different cause
as it occurs in normal runs as well.

I'll take a closer look later on.

You may be right about the pickle error, thanks for pointing that out.

Just to illustrate:

with trunk r263 on windows, using itrade as test project
running pythoscope *.py twice gives the following error

ERROR: Oops, it seems internal Pythoscope error occured. Please file a
bug report at

Pickle loading error fixed in trunk r264.

Bad file mode was at fault - we used text, while a binary mode should've been used instead.

thanks for the fix

No problem. Now only the fixture removal remains. :-)
