> Thanks all. Problem apparently solved. Shortly after that last message it
> quit working completely. Reinstall Python 2.7 + swampy -> no good;
> uninstall both 2.7 and 3.4, manually remove the folders that remained
> because of scripts that got saved in the base folder, reset sys path,
> reinstall both, add 2.7 to path, reinstall Swampy from new download -> no
> good; remove 2.7, new 2.7 dl and install, new Swampy dl and install ->
> works perfectly this morning.
> Sorry to jump in at the end, but I can't help noticing that something
important (mentioned earlier in the thread) may have got missed: swampy is
available from PyPi, which means that there are several automatic tools
(easy-install, pip, etc.) available to install it for you (and presumably
make the details work properly.)  With very few exceptions, if a module is
available from PyPi, the proper way to install it is via one of those tools
and NOT a manual download.  The fact that you mention installing Swampy
from a download tells me you're not using those tools - am I mistaken?

For Windows users, there's pip-win (
https://sites.google.com/site/pydatalog/python/pip-for-windows).  It's not
only incredibly simple to use, but it's specifically designed for machines
with multiple Python versions; so (gulp!) I actually recommend the Windows
tool over the command-line in this case.
