Hello all you Google App Engine experts,

I have used Django a little before but am new to Google App Engine and am trying to use it's development web server with Django for the first time.

I don't know if this is relevent but I previously had Django 1.1 and Python 2.6 on my Windows XP and even though I have uninstalled Python 2.6 there is still a folder and entries in the registry.

I have followed the instructions from Google but when I browse to the GAE developemnt web server it cannot find my settings (details below).

Any hints gratefully received.

Regards

Geoff
