[reportlab-users] Installation snag

My platform is winXP pro.  I installed zope 2.8.4-final from a
precompiled form.  The version of python is 2.3.5.  I copied the dll's
properly and I believe installed reportlab_1_20 correctly. I performed
the following.

C:\Program Files\Zope-2.8.4-final\bin\reportlab\test>..\..\python
Ran 1 test in 8.163s


However, no pdf appeared on my system at all.  So I performed the full
test with the following results

C:\Program Files\Zope-2.8.4-final\bin\reportlab\test>..\..\python
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "runAll.py", line 65, in ?
  File "runAll.py", line 55, in main
    testSuite = makeSuite(folder,nonImportable=NI,pattern=pattern+(not
haveSRC and 'c' or ''))
  File "runAll.py", line 17, in makeSuite
    for filename in GlobDirectoryWalker(folder, pattern):
  File "C:\Program Files\Zope-2.8.4-final\bin\reportlab\test\utils.py",
line 98, in __init__
    raise ValueError('"%s" is not a directory' % directory)
ValueError: "" is not a directory

Now I had previously installed many versions of python on this system
and the one recognized by the system is python2.4.  So that is why I had
to run the test by explicitly stating where the python.exe was to be
found.  I'm not sure if that is the problem so I thought I would try the
users group.   Any ideas or can you point me to a place with some
troubleshooting tips?   Thanks.
