Do you get the crash if you edit zenmapCore/Nmap.py and change the
Unicode strings to plain strings? So change
APP_NAME = u"zenmap"
APP_NAME = "zenmap"
for all the strings. If so then the problem isn't Vladimir's fault, it's
something I did to try to fix the database file not being found on
I changed these strings in zenmapCore/Name.py and it builds without
error. So it looks like you're right. I haven't looked into this in
any great detail, but there's mention here  that this error could be
thrown upon the attempt to decode an already unicode string as unicode -
which seems to make sense since the files are marked with utf-8.
Anyway once that error was out of the way, upon running zenmap.exe I got:
Zenmap Version: 4.68
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "zenmap", line 100, in <module>
File "zenmapGUI\App.pyo", line 139, in run
File "zenmapGUI\App.pyo", line 83, in is_root
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'getuid'
Which I fixed by swapping the tests for os.getuid() and sys.platform in
is_root so that the test for windows came first:
return os.getuid() == 0 or sys.platform == "win32" or is_maemo()
return sys.platform == "win32" or os.getuid() == 0 or is_maemo()
This works, but I can't say how this might affect other OS's. Now, at
least, I get to play!
