(2014-03-12) Running DDRescue-GUI on Windows

Post by hamishmb »

Original post from "Christopher" (2014-03-12):

Hi there,
I have tried to run ddrescue gui on windows but I have failed, even-though I have installed Python 2.7 and wxPython 3.0, an error show in the command promote.
I have had success compiling ddrescue 1.17 source code to a windows executable using cygwin, and it works perfectly.

Here is the error that shows when trying to run ddrescue gui python on windows cmd :

Code: Select all

    warndlg = wx.MessageDialog(None, 'DDRescue-GUI has been unable to determine
if it is being run on a Linux system, or an Apple system. This information is re
quired, so please click yes for a Linux system, and click no for an Apple system
. Thank you.', 'DDRescue-GUI - Exclamation!', wx.YES_NO | wx.ICON_EXCLAMATION).S
howModal()
  File "G:\Python27\lib\site-packages\wx-3.0-msw\wx\_windows.py", line 3623, in
__init__
    _windows_.MessageDialog_swiginit(self,_windows_.new_MessageDialog(*args, **k
wargs))
wx._core.PyNoAppError: The wx.App object must be created first!

Sorry! I never saw this because for some unknown reason I wasn't emailed, so it expired before I looked for new questions manually.

Anyway, sorry, DDRescue-GUI doesn't work on Windows, but I have now fixed the error shown in the description.
