                        This is fixed in svn 8392. Look for it in the
                        release. Please
                        test from svn if you are able


                        Thanks for the report,

                        Hi, John, etc. I checked-out current revision
        (8396 I
                        believe), tried to
                        build using python setup.py build, got error:
        Unable to
                        find vcvarsall.bat.
                        Googled, determined that it was something I'm
                        to get w/ a VC
                        runtime, so grabbed the most recent version
        (VC2010 or
                        some such),
                        installed, determined that I now have a
                        and added it's
                        location to my path, but am still getting the error.
                          Any ideas?
                        Windows 7 home prem. 64 bit. Python 2.6. Thanks!


                    Oh, and the error happens after building
        'matplotlib.ft2font' extension.
                    Thanks again,

                Perhaps Christoph, who builds the win32 binaries, can
        let you know
                what he does. It's never as simple a python setup.py
                  You may want to look in the release/win32 directory at the
                and Makefile.

            You need Visual Studio 2008 (MSVC9) to compile extensions
        for Python
        >=2.6 on Windows. "python setup.py build" works once you have built
            the prerequisites. See
        <http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/users/installing.html&gt;\. I link
            against the static libraries of libpng, zlib, and freetype,

        I don't already have those - where do I get them, please?

    libpng Home Page

    It is best to build those libraries yourself, with exactly the same
    compiler and runtime

Is there a way to determine these if I used the build delivered via

Python 2.6.5 (r265:79096, Mar 19 2010, 21:48:26) [MSC v.1500 32 bit (Intel)] on win32
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

import platform

'MSC v.1500 32 bit (Intel)'

This is the Visual Studio 2008 compiler. I think this is also mentioned in the release notes. The C runtime library is the default used by VS2008. You can verify the version with a tool like Dependency Walker. I just mentioned it because VS2008 SP1 comes with a new revision of the C runtime, which is not enabled by default - keep it that way. I use the /MD switch when compiling libraries for Python extensions.
