I have been trying to install bomsaway from the instructions above on windows 7, 64 bit. However, when I issue the command in the Windows cmd.exe command line: C:\BomsAway>bomsaway.py
I get Bomsaway to open, but it doesn’t populate the Quantity, refs, etc. And, really doesn’t seem to do anything. this is after I opened a KiCAD schematic. It does populate the footprints and components boxes.
When I try C:\BomsAway>bomsawaywx.py, I get an error where bomsawaywx.py is not recgonized as an internal or external command.
I did install sqlalchemy and when I try again I get:
C:\BomsAway>c:\Python27\python.exe -m pip install sqlalchemy
Requirement already satisfied: sqlalchemy in c:\python27\lib\site-packages
I also installed from the c:\python27 folder python.exe -m pip install sqlalchemy
and got a message it installed correctly and see the files here:
Lastly, I did install wxpython and don’t get the Traceback error described in the post above w/ the instructions… Because I can’t get boms-away to work correclty, I uninstalled wxpython 32-bit and installed wxpython 64-bit. I did get the error in the post above, so I went back to wxpythong 32.bit.
I tried the following from the windows command line:
RESULT - Nothing happens.
RESULT - Boms away opens, but doesn’t populate the Qty, Refs, or footprint field.
Maybe someone has a suggestion to help?
