Thread subject: sK1 Project :: Installing to main python directory on Windows

Posted by andy on 08-12-2010 05:55


Is it possible to install UniConvertor into the main Python directory on Windows (c:\python26) instead of using the python bundled with the installer?

I tried manually transferring files from the installation directory to the python26 dir, but couldn't figure out exactly what I needed.

The simplest way is compiling regular .exe installers from project source code. We don't provide such installers because a lot of windows users prefer unified msi installer with bundled python.

Hi Igor,

I tried doing " install" with the source distribution. It used visual studio to do the c/c++ compilation but complained because it was missing the lcms library header file. I managed to find a version of that library from the gnuwin32 project and compiled it with visual studio but couldn't figure out where I needed to put it to get uniconvertor to pick it up. Any ideas?

Hi Andy,

During distutils build Python seeks headers in %PYTHONHOME%/include
You can try adding they in this folder.
