how to install numpy on windows vista

i copied numpy 1.62 from
my system from the python 3.2 folder

into the app folder script addon for blender 2.69

but i get a lot of errors of multiple modules ?

last error was

from . import multiarray
mportError: Module use of python32.dll conflicts with this version of Python.
rror: Python script fail, look in the console for now…

and do i have to add a new path or it can imported directly in a script ?

is it same ideas with scipy and ply parts?

how can this be installed on 2.69 ?


Maybe I am totally wrong, but I think that Blender now uses Python 3.3.

Actually, I also had to install NumPy some days ago, and I remember these compatibility problems, too. As there is no officially known 3.3 build of NumPy (despite the 1.8.0 release notes file on SF), I used the one from this very useful website:

(Naturally, it is unofficial, sometimes not optimized, and only for Windows…)

so i would need to get this one
or Visual C++ 2010 (64 bit or 32 bit, for CPython 3.3) redistributable packages.
then is this like an execute and it will install itself ?

or does it have to be build cause i don’t do that !

can you give step by step what has to be done

it says that
The binaries are compatible with the official CPython distribution on Windows >=6.0.

so this would not work on vista 32 bits !


I guess you don’t have to compile anything…

Just download the right executable (in your case, “numpy-MKL-1.8.0.win32-py3.3.exe” I believe), install it like any other Python library (so you need Python 3.3 installed), and then copy the folder to Blender’s Python’s (I don’t know if this folder is automatically detected by the installer as a valid Python, it wasn’t the case for me - so install it in the “normal” Python before).

EDIT: Actually it is mentionned that it could maybe not work with custom distr’ for Blender, …, but I haven’t had any problem so far.

EDIT2: And I have Win7, so I can’t tell anything about Vista. The only thing you can do, IMO, is: trying.

thanks it is working on vista 32 bits now
from the installed blender version!

happy blendering

Glad to hear that! :wink:
