missing module

From: Herman Berendsen <H.Berendsen@...1775...> - 2007-10-01 08:48
After installing matplotlib (matplotlib-0.90.1.win32-py2.5.exe) on
Windows XP, the command "from pylab import *" results in an error
message complaining that the file "_agg" is missing. Indeed there is no
file "_agg.py" in the distribution, although a file "_agg.pyd" exists.
Can anyone suggest how to solve this problem?

I found that pywin was masking the true error message which was
"missing mvsvcp71.dll"

Running python from the command prompt I could see this error, after I
downloaded this dll matplotlib works fine.

Hope this helps.
