[Image-SIG] trouble using PIL on windows
Tue, 29 Feb 2000 08:09:17 -0500
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:
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
