[Image-SIG] trouble using PIL on windows

Hi.  Thanks for the advice.  I put the _imaging.dll in the python root
directory (i.e. d:\python).  It still won't load.  When I type:

import _imaging

I get the following error:

Traceback (innermost last):
  File "<interactive input>", line 1, in ?
ImportError: DLL load failed: The specified module could not be found.

When I do sys.path however, it lists d:\python as being part of the python
search path.  Any other suggestions?  Thanks again.

the _imaging.dll file should be placed some-
where along your Python search path.

to figure out what goes wrong, fire up your
python interpreter and type:

    >>> import _imaging

if you get an ImportError, check that sys.path
is what you expect:

    >>> import sys
    >>> sys.path
