Subject Can't install fdb 0.8.5
Author skoczian

I tried to install fdb 0.8.5, first using pip, then "python install", but got both times the same exception:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<string>", line 14, in <module>

from fdb import __version__

TypeError: bad argument type for built-in operation

Windows 7 Home Premium, Firebird 2.5.1 (locally installed), Python 3.2.3

What can I do?

Thank you,
