Uhm, the first incantation was written by Shane Graber some 2+ years
ago. I just happened to be the last visitor to write a comment. Shane
deserves the glory, not me.

Done, but I followed quite a different approach: not starting with a
bare Zope installation followed by downloading a Grok-tarbal, but much
more resembling the current installation instructions for GNU/Linux
(install python and win32all, easy_install grokproject, etc.).

Since I only have OEM-licensed Windows, I cannot start with a clean
(virtualized) environment each time a grok/grokproject release is made.
Therefore there may be some legacy settings stemming from actions that I
forgot to mention.
I hope the installation howto will get many eyeballs so that all
remaining problems will become shallow. Head over to:
