"zlib not available" on Windows 7

Reported by: maxim_mazurok Owned by: maxim_mazurok
Priority: major Milestone: 2.2
Component: packaging Version: 2.1.x
Keywords: windows, zlib, msys, mingw Cc:


Hi! I've successfully built xpra-2.1.2 on Windows 7, using the latest MSYS2 with updated packages from pacman. I've installed all required programs and the build process finishes with no errors.
I am using MSYS2 instead of mingw-w64 (as suggested here https://www.xpra.org/trac/wiki/Building/MSWindows) because I was unable to run MINGW_SETUP.sh script using mingw, as it came without pacman.
After the build is done and installation is successful, I am trying to start the Xpra-Launcher and it fails with error: "cx_Freeze: Python error in main script (traceback unavailable)" written in subject, and "Cannot import traceback module. Exception: can't decompress data; zlib not available. Original exception: can't decompress data; zlib not available." error text.

Can someone help me, please? I'm trying to solve this issue for a week now. I've reinstalled Windows (in VM), Visual Studio 2015 and all other needed things.
I think that the issue might be in cx_Freeze itself, but maybe I'm doing something wrong?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Make sure you are using the correct version of cx_Freeze. See r16175.

If that doesn't fix it, post the build log files: (win32/*log.
