Error while using Panda 1.6.2

Hey there,

i have some problems installing Panda3D. I cant start any of the examples nor can i compile and start own projects.

Iam using Panda on Windows XP and SP3. As Editor i use eclipse with pydev.

Whenever i try to start a programm with Panda3D routines like

import direct.directbase.DirectStart

i get the following error message:

DirectStart: Starting the game.
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “C:\eclipse\workspace\Kaiser2\src\”, line 7, in
import direct.directbase.DirectStart
File “C:\Panda3D-1.6.2\direct\directbase\”, line 3, in
from direct.showbase import ShowBase
File “C:\Panda3D-1.6.2\direct\showbase\”, line 10, in

File “C:\Panda3D-1.6.2\pandac\”, line 73, in Dtool_PreloadDLL
imp.load_dynamic(module, pathname)
ImportError: DLL load failed: Diese Anwendung konnte nicht gestartet werden, weil die Anwenungskonfiguration nicht korrekt ist. Zur Problembehebung sollten Sie die Anwendung neu installieren.

The last sentence is in german and traduced ít means:

Application could not be started since the configuration is not correct. Please reinstall the application.

I reinstalled the whole package several times with different combinations of editors and phyton (even though panda is supposed to use his own python distribution). At the moment i have Panda installed without any further python interpreters (besides the one included) and any python extensions. I even installed Panda on a second computer with the same result. I get the error message wether i start the application within eclipse or from the command line.

Can someone give me an hint? What is going wrong?

Thanks for your help!

Thanks for the answer! I guess i have been searching the forums for the wrong keywords. Iam sorry for that!
