Dear Keule,

Please be careful about sending questions to the appropriate mailing
lists.  You CC'ed your question off to the SWIG list, but the SWIG folks
probably won't be familiar about Python MegaWidgets.

How are you trying to use the PmwEntryField module?  Can you show us what
you did to get this error message?

Also, you probably should not be trying to use the PmwEntryField.py within
that long directory name:


To install Pmw, the files should only be under the
C:\Python22\lib\site-packages\Pmw\ directory.  Your
C:\Python22\lib\site-packages\Pmw directory itself must contain at least
the "Pmw_0_8_5" subdirectory.

Can you do a 'dir' within C:\Python2.2\lib\site-packages\Pmw to confirm

Yes, but you don't need that directory once you've copied over the Pmw\
directory and all its contents over to site-packages\Pmw.

Hope this helps!
