I installed the GNUme 0.1 clinet on WinXP with wxPython 2.4 and Python
2.3 and the other recommended libraries. I had to edit gnumed.bat to
chnage the path tot he fiels to "C:\program Files\GNUmed-client" -
"Program Files" is the default installation path on all English language
versions of Windows.

The client then appeared (eventually) but I was unable to view any
existing patients (none offered) and was unable to add any new patients
because it kept saying that DOB had to be in YY-MM-DD format - no matter
what date format I tried, same error message. It wouldn't let me change
to any other tab without a patient record loaded. The BMI and EDC tools
worked but didn't print out. At that stage i concluded the test, since
there was nothing else that appeared to even vaguely work.

Sorry if the above seems negative, but that is an accurate account of my
experience with the GNUmed v0.1 client. Still, having a client which
actually displays something (even if it doesn't work) is a big step
forward for GNUmed.

Oh, the error messages kept telling me to look in teh logs. Where are
they being written?
