Golly 3.3 can't find python27.dll

Post by ihatecorderships » April 15th, 2021, 4:26 pm

I am using Golly 3.3 to try and run the apgsearch 1.1. I have downloaded python 2.7.16 from the official python website. However, when I try to run a .py file, Golly says "could not load the python library." I am using windows. Why is this?

Most likely you either downloaded 32-bit Golly and 64-bit Python 2.7.16, or 64-bit Golly and 32-bit Python 2.7.16.

If you don't think that that's what you did, please post the exact names of your Golly and Python download files, and we can see what else might be going wrong.
