[Image-SIG] trouble using PIL on windows

Hi. No, I didn't compile python. I downloaded the pre-built python 1.5.2
for windows. Thanks for your help.

Did you compile Python yourself, and are running a debug build?
If so, then all your external modules need to be debug builds
as well (or at least the file name should follow the xxx_d.pyd
It took me about two days to figure out that this was the
reason I couldn't load _tkinter.pyd myself. As far as I can
tell, this behaviour is completely undocumented, but of course
I may have overlooked something.
If this doesn't help you, then I'll have to pass the topic
over to the experts...
