On #grok, d2m made the suggestion of

easy_install zope.app.testing==3.4.3

That finally halted with an error complaining about Visual Studio 7.1 
not being present. Typing again

grokproject Sample

lead to a similar error for zope.app.file. Again using easy_install:

easy_install zope.app.file==3.4.4

and after the VS7.1 error

grokproject Sample

finally lead to a situation where

zopectl fg

could run.

So with some jumping through hoops, Grok 0.14 is running on MS Windows.

Thanks, d2m!

Should I file a bug report somewhere, since it is a reproducable error 
for those two packages?
