Hi all,

I would like to use PIL in a Python script that does some document 
automation work in Open Office under Windows XP.

When I try to run some of the PIL utilities, I get an error
"Image.py:64: RuntimeWarning: The _imaging extension was built for 
another version of Python; most PIL functions will be disabled"

The Python version that comes bundled with Open Office 2.0.1 is 2.3.4, 
so I downloaded PIL 1.1.5 for Python 2.3 from 
and installed it. As it didn't find the Python installation by itself, I 
had to register it myself with the register script from 

What am I doing wrong ??
