The file is only there to mollify Wing's perhaps too-strict definition
of what can be a module (Zope does path trickery that's somewhat outside
of "normal" Python path behavior).  I don't think Zope will look at it
and off-hand Python may not create a *.pyc for blank files.

Given that you have:

from Products.Archetypes.public import BaseContent, registerType

You need to add the directory where "Products" is to your Python Path
and not the Products directory itself.  Try this:


(note D:\ZopeData *not* D:\ZopeData\Products)

This is a common confusion and yes we will improve the Zope How-To
and make this easier to set up in general.

Thanks for all the feedback.
