running Win XP, Python 2.4 with matlibplot and wxpython installed from these executables both down-loaded from sourceforge
Just taking the first steps with matplotlib and wxpython using wxmpl. Running one of the wxmpl test apps I get this error message
python.exe - Unable to locate component
"This application has failed to start because wxmsw26uh_vc.dll was not found. Reinstalling this application may fix this problem"
After dismissing the message box, the app pops up and runs OK so I guess the error is not that serious but still pretty irritating to users. Tried reinstalling but that doesn't help. Also did a google search on wxmsw26uh_vc.dll and it seems that several people have reported this problem but I couldn't find a solution. One of the discussions I did find mentioned unicode versions of wxpython but AFAIK I have never installed a unicode version.
All suggestions gratefully received!
