Installing ZMySQLDA on Windows is not nearly so hard as some people make
it out to be, but I suppose it could be easier. You do have to have
MySQLdb/MySQL-python installed. There's a MySQL-python binary package
for Windows and a standard Python 2.1 installation, but Zope binary
packages comes with their own pre-packaged Python, so Zope never sees
it. The installer doesn't let you install anywhere else, and there is no
package built against Zope's Python. Furthermore I do no development
work on Windows at all and cannot build any binary packages for that
platform; all Windows packages I have are contributed and that is not
likely to change anytime soon.
