Can someone throw some light on this problem? (is trying to run Python 2.4.2
on an old win95 box a reasonable thing to do?)
I keep my old win95 box for an old eprom programmer that won't plug into a
new box (needs an ISA socket!). Also use it for network testing. No problem
with Py 2.3 but wanting to use the latest Twisted I upgraded to 2.4.2.
Installing Mark Hammond's pywin32-207.win32-py2.4.exe (or prev version -205)
I get the following error message during the post install script bit of the
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<string>", line 365, in ?
File "<string>", line 155, in install
File "<string>", line 94, in LoadSystemModule
ImportError: DLL load failed: A device attached to the system is not
*** run_installscript: internal error 0xFFFFFFFF ***
When I try to run a script using the socket library (also trying to start
Stani's Python Editor) I get the following message:-
File "C:\APPS\PYTHON\242\lib\SocketServer.py", line 132, in ?
File "C:\APPS\PYTHON\242\lib\socket.py", line 45, in ?
ImportError: DLL load failed: One of the library files needed to run this
ation cannot be found.
Is it the same dll in both cases, any idea what it might be and where could
I find a copy?
