TabError: inconsistent use of tabs and spaces in indentation

I'm receving the following error when I try to run the stock script on Windows XP.
Any ideas why or what I'm doing wrong?
BTW: I'm using Python 3.0.1.
Thanks, Bill

    Hi Bill,

    Welcome to the forum.
    BTW: I'm using Python 3.0.1.

    This is probably the reason. The most recent Python version that we use on Windows is 2.6.x, so it's quite possible there could be issues trying to run our test scripts with Python 3.x.

  • Thanks Mark.
    I guess I'll just do without the Python build test for now. I think my build worked.

    I'm new to Ice (3 days) and have been using the binaries until now. I'm another one of those people interested in (requiring) using Ice with Qt and I'm finding issues at this point. I decided I'd better build the C++ source to help evaluate unhandled excpetions that Ice is throwing early on (during the ">load("config.client");" call in main()).

    I'm sure i'll have more questions when i'm further along in my evalution.
    BTW: We're using Qt version 4.5.0.
