me again with more annoying question!(no i'm just failing)

hi again!

like you probably know:i’m new to panda3D (and you probably know that i want to use it at is full power^^)

i’m taking the solar sys tutorial, and i realize how easy it was to create a blank window!

#Panda3D direct start

import direct.directbase.DirectStart #initialize panda3D

run()#run the program

however the python win editor return me this folowing code:

DirectStart: Starting the game.
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\Python26\Lib\site-packages\pythonwin\pywin\framework\", line 309, in RunScript, __main__.__dict__, start_stepping=0)

    _GetCurrentDebugger().run(cmd, globals,locals, start_stepping)

    from extension_native_helpers import *
  File "C:\Panda3D-1.7.0\pandac\", line 54, in <module>
    raise ImportError, message
ImportError: Cannot find libpandaexpress.dll

what’s the problem?

here’s my future vision:
¤95% of chance that i’m stupid
¤5% of chance that’s my PC is stupid

thanks in advice for greatful help !


Suggestion for the future, if you see a similar error where there is a problem with a specific file (ie, unable to import libpandaexpress.dll) do a forum search with the file name. Usually it turns up some helpful threads like this one:

PS, this post may come off as snobby, it really isn’t just trying to be helpful :smiley:
