Re: [pygame] Pygame Installation problems (Python 2.6.2)

Maybe you are trying to use a 64-bit python to run a 32-bit pygame? Since pygame has compiled .pyd files, that probably would not work.

Hey everyone, hopefully this email works.  This is my first time using a mailing list (crazy, I know).

Anyway, I am having trouble getting python to recognize (import) pygame.

I am running vista 64bit, I have Python 2.6.2 installed (works fine), I installed pygame-1.9.1.win32-py2.6.msi into my directory that contains python 2.6.2.

When I open IDLE and try: import pygame
I get this error:

IDLE 2.6.2     
>>> import pygame

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<pyshell#0>", line 1, in <module>
    import pygame
  File "C:\Python26\lib\site-packages\pygame\__init__.py", line 95, in <module>
    from pygame.base import *
ImportError: DLL load failed: %1 is not a valid Win32 application.

I do see the pygame folder listed here root:\python26\include\pygame

I also see the pygame folder listed here root:\python26\lib\site-packages\pygame

I'm not sure what else I'm missing here.

Thanks for any helpful or insightful replies!
