Python 2.7.15 not working on Golly 3.1

Postby PushDecimal » December 19th, 2018, 3:55 pm

Whenever I specify the path to python27.dll, the "Could not load the Python library" dialog reappears.

If you're on Windows, try setting the file path to this:
C:\Windows\SysWOW64\python27.dll


If that doesn't work, then this might:
C:\Windows\System32\python27.dll

If neither of Ian07's suggestions work, please post the name of the Golly ZIP file you downloaded, and the name of the Python installer executable.

Or post what version Golly says it is in the status bar when you first start it up, and what version Python says it is when you type import sys;print sys.version at a Python command line. Both of those should say something about 32-bit vs. 64-bit, and they have to match.

Wow, I'm dumb. Turns out I was trying to run 64-bit Python on 32-bit Golly! When I ran a script in Golly 3.0 (64-bit), it worked perfectly.
I'm on Wikipedia and Reddit.
