We're upgrading a customer's py26 Plone 4 to py27. Created a py27 virtualenv, updated the buildout in-place (newer bootstrap, zc.buildout). Zeoserver and clients now run fine.
Problem is installation in Windows service manager: This was a binary installer originally. The buildout parts that should generate the Service-specific python binaries used enfold.recipe.winserver, which is not on the customer's server anymore and dist.enfoldsystems.com has gone. Can't find it on github either. From https://github.com/plone/WinPloneInstaller/issues/1 i deduce that installing Plone in service manager is non-trivial even on Plone 5.
- Could one do manually what that recipe does, and if yes, how?
- Who has used http://nssm.cc/? We're considering that to be an option, if the customer's IT allows it.
- Any other thoughts?
Thanks in advance for any answers!
