[Ironpython-users] IronPython: Import DLL library

Hi, Herman,

Sorry, I did not use any of those two myself yet, just heard some success (and a few failure) stories of others.

http://ironpython.net/documentation/dotnet/ contains some explanations and sample code for COM.


For ctypes, which _should_ work the same as in cPython, there are lots of examples and tutorials on the net: http://python.net/crew/theller/ctypes/tutorial.html


In both cases, I guess you will need basic knowledge of COM or C calling conventions and memory layout to be successful.

Best regards

Thanks for info markus,

Can you please send me sample code to use ctypes and also COM interface?


Thanks and Regards,

Hi,

I fit is not explicitly stated that it is C++/CLI (or some other keywords like “mixed mode” or “managed C++), I’d guess that it is pure native.

The library might expose a COM interface, in that case you could interact with it using COM.

Another way for a wrapper could be using the ctypes module from the standard library.

Where did you get the library? If it is native, then you would have to write a wrapper library in C# or CLI/C++ that interacted with the library through P/Invoke (for C#) or the native function calls if CLI/C++.

Hi,

Thanks for your reply.

How to check the library is native C++ or not?

If it is a native C++ then, is there any work around for the same.

Thanks and Regards,

Do you mean the library is CLI/C++, or is it native C++? If native C++, it won't work with IronPython currently.

HI All,


I am trying to add reference and import BMAPIa.DLL library using CLR. But it is throwing an error message.

My code:

Import clr
Clr.AddReferenceToFile(“BMAPIa.dll”)
Import BMAPIa

Error:

C:\Users\Administrator>"C:\Program Files (x86)\IronPython 2.7\ipy.exe" "C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\AMD64\test.py"
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\AMD64\test.py", line 9, in <module>
SystemError: The module was expected to contain an assembly manifest. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80131018)

Please let me know where am i going wrong?

FYI…. This is library is written in C++ and I am not aware of in which .NET framework it is been built.
