Zlib problem on Windows XP??

Discussion in 'Python' started by Kevin Ollivier, Jul 22, 2003.

  1. Hi all,

    When using the latest Python 2.2.x releases as well as the Python 2.3
    betas and rc1 on Win XP, I cannot import zlib. When I try, I get an
    error about the dynamic module not having an 'initzlib' symbol. The
    strange thing is that this problem seems to be XP-specific - on Windows
    2K I do not get this error. I've installed Python 2.2.3 on two XP
    machines with the same results. I installed the latest beta on one of
    the machines, but the results were the same. (Haven't tried RC1 yet.)

    Does anyone else see this problem? I thought it was something I had
    done at first, but I haven't built Python myself and the error occurs
    right after installation, so I'm stuck as to what could be happening.

    Thanks!

    Kevin
