Check out a few of the many previous threads that people have started when they have this problem.

If you still have trouble after checking that you have 32-bit Golly and 32-bit Python 2.7.(something), or else 64-bit Golly and 64-bit Python 2.7.(something), then please post the exact versions of Golly and Python that you have on your system, and what your OS is.

Mine finally managed to work after about 5 months when I set the file path to C:\Windows\SysWOW64\python27.dll so try that if you're on Windows 10. If that doesn't work then I heard the DLL could also be inside the System32 folder.

Golly needs to clarify this better to be honest. It just brings up some textbox that doesn't explain that you need the right bit thingamagig.
Please stop using my full name. Refer to me as dani.
