[Image-SIG] trouble using PIL on windows
Tue, 29 Feb 2000 09:16:36 -0500
Hi. Still no luck. Neither changing the name to _imaging.pyd or moving the
file to the root python directory allowed it to be loaded, always producing
the same error (see below). This is quite strange since I have no trouble
loading the other modules I have installed (pymat, numpy, wxpython,
tkinter). Could there be files missing in the windows distribution of PIL -
I downloaded this file: pil-win32-991101.zip. Any other suggestions?

You could try renaming it to _imaging.pyd. I'm not quite
sure if I fully understand when Python looks for *.dll and
when for *.pyd files, but the latter is definitively a
convention for C-extensions and works for me with _imaging.
