Its not part of the standard library so I'll need to assume you
are correct and it installed correctly. However from some of the
errors below it looks as if you \also need numpy/SciPy installed
 - have you done that too?

If so then I hope somebody else can assist.

You might find a tensorflow help forum or email address you
can ask too?

Do you have the right version of numpy for your module?
