I used the x86 Python 2.6.4 installer. I am working in x64 Win7 pro.

I have tried adjusting environment variables as well as putting the
files directly in the search path of Python.. Python still returns
this.. Any ideas?

>>> import sys
>>> sys.path

['C:\\Python26\\Lib\\idlelib', 'C:\\Program Files\\Autodesk\\Maya2010\
\Python\\Lib\\site-packages', 'C:\\Windows\\system32\\python26.zip',
'C:\\Python26\\DLLs', 'C:\\Python26\\lib', 'C:\\Python26\\lib\\plat-
win', 'C:\\Python26\\lib\\lib-tk', 'C:\\Python26', 'C:\\Python26\\lib\
\site-packages']
>>> import cv


Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<pyshell#4>", line 1, in <module>
import cv
ImportError: DLL load failed: The specified module could not be found.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Where are you expecting the cv module / package to be? It's certainly not in
the standard library -- at least not in my install of Python 2.6.4...

Sorry, you've still not told me where you expect it to be. Could you let us
know what .py files you can see in C:\OpenCV2.0\Python2.6\Lib ?

Glad to be able to help

Especially when you've managed to solve something, could you please remember
to CC the list on your reply, so if people run across the problem in future
they can benefit from your experience?

Thanks,
Rami
