I am a newbie, but I installed python about 2 months ago, from binaries
and added PIL maybe a month ago with no problems on Win XP Pro. I refuse
to compile anything.
The python log file has no 'jpg' or 'jpeg' files, but the
PIL log file has these two:
200 File Copy: C:\Python23\Lib\site-packages\PIL\JpegImagePlugin.py
200 File Copy: C:\Python23\Lib\site-packages\PIL\JpegImagePlugin.pyc
I do not have libjpeg.dll
