Ahh, I'm wrong. Distutils 1.0.1 do not work with Python 1.5.2 on Win32 because the 1.5.2 config.h for Win does *not* contain the neccesarry #pragma definitions for the library inclusion (at least in my copy).
This is from 1.5.2 config.h: #ifdef MS_WIN32
#ifndef USE_DL_EXPORT /* So nobody needs to specify the .lib in their Makefile any more */ #ifdef _DEBUG #pragma comment(lib,"python15_d.lib") #else #pragma comment(lib,"python15.lib") #endif #endif /* USE_DL_EXPORT */
So, it *should* work... And it *does* work, just checked it out.
So I guess get_libraries in distutils/command/build_ext.py should be changed to something like
It has been debated on distutils-sig in the past whether build_ext should special-case MSVCCompiler or not. Maybe we should remove this special case completely. Anyway, I would be interrested why it does not work for you.
OK, my boss needed 1.5.2. He made a local install and copied the file to our file server, but only the executables, not the header files, so they are still from 1.5. Now I replaced them with the new ones and it all works better now. Thanks for your help.
