comment How can I create a QGIS plugin that needs an external Python library?
Welcome to GIS.SE. This sounds more like a pure Python problem, which would be better asked over at StackOverflow. I would suggest searching there first, because I had a similar issue a few weeks ago, and found the answer on there.

comment Adding transportation schedules to a network dataset
Hey Winston, nice to see you here :) Yes, at the time that option did not exist. I got in contact with Melinda Morang at ESRI, who was developing that tool. By the time it came out, the project I needed it for had already been completed. This definitely seemed like a viable option. If you use this, please post back here?

comment Unable to rename file geodatabase in ArcGIS running in a VM
@Mapperz I'm on Windows 7. The only reason I changed from VirtualBox to VMWare is because the rest of the team is using VMWare. I'm the only GIS dev though, so my problems are a bit different to theirs.

comment Unable to rename file geodatabase in ArcGIS running in a VM
@nickves Yes, the data (file gdbs, shapefiles etc) are stored on the host, accessed through the vm via a mapped drive (not VMWare Shared Folders). I know I used the term "locked" but because of what I said next (restarting the VM does not help, and I cannot rename any file gdbs at all, even old ones), this leads me to believe that it is not a locking issue.

comment arcpy.da.Walk not adhering to datatype filter “Locator”
@GISGe I think that may have been the problem. I was given a gdb created in 10.1. Now that I created a gdb in 10.3 and created a locator in it, the filter is now working correctly.

comment How do you use Windows folders as acrpy Parameters
To overcome any ArcGIS debauchery with folders, I always use os.path.join. Always. Raw string if needed.
