The pyhamilton-configure tool modifies your Hamilton folder in two ways: It copies folders from the PyHamilton repo into 'C:/Program Files (x86)/HAMILTON/Library'. This is a hard-coded path in PyHamilton, so it can’t touch your HAMILTON\Config folder.
The other action it performs is executing Hamilton-issued installers. Before it executes them, a yes/no prompt appears for each one saying which library it installs. This is the only aspect of pyhamilton-configure that could modify something in HAMILTON\Config, which we expect it to. I’m happy to work with you further to directly troubleshoot this issue on a call. Please provide trace files of any methods that dont execute as expected so we can pinpoint what the error is. Tracefiles are very informative for these purposes.
I’ll provide more information on the Github instructions about what pyhamilton-configure does.
Thanks @EricSindelar_Hamilton. Of course there is documentation already, it seems Hamilton has guides for everything!
@Zach, yeah I agree, I’m considering integrating .dlls from c#/c++ more too. Some of the docs from Eric above give info about registering the COM objects and stuff. If not, ask away here and the forum can help at the same time as documenting it…
But please, the PyHamilton package really shouldn’t be touching the config at all - it’s way too dangerous and the installation can be fragile. Trust that the user has the correct system and just install the necessary python files.
A bit off-topic, but this was the only thing on all of google that came up for “Venus 6”…and it seems like a few people in here are either hoping to use it soon or may be actively using it. Is it released yet? If not, does anyone (@EricSindelar_Hamilton ?) have an idea when it’s supposed to come out?
