(*** sorry for my bad english***)

I have the message (title), but only with PIL 1.1.7 (Windows XP, Vista 
or 7 (32 bits or 64 bits)).

I tried:

 _imaging.pyd  exist in C:\Python26\Lib\site-packages\PIL

 python -v
 >>> import Image

 sys.path contain C:\Python26\Lib\site-packages\PIL

 >>> import _imaging

I tested on more than 6 computers, with new installations, or update 
installations. Same problem.
Same problem, also, with Python 2.6 or Python 2.7

If I install again PIL 1.1.6, all scripts run OK.

Then, I install again PIL 1.1.7, the problem returns.

It is the only thing than I wait before update to Python 2.7

One idea?  Thanks in advance.
