[MMTK] A rather annoying newbie question on the netCDF interface

Sorry Robin - I'm not sure what's wrong on your system:

I found a Windows XP machine without Python on it, ran windows update, and installed Python and MMTK following the Wiki instructions.


For the installers, I just used the default settings.  For netcdf, I just extracted netcdf.dll into C:\Windows\Sytem32:



I tested the argon.py example, and the following two one-liners:

import Scientific.IO.NetCDF

from Scientific.IO.NetCDF import NetCDFFile

All works fine here I'm afraid.

 Tried this suggestion, regardless of the location of netcdf.dll python 
 still crashes.

 That's really good of you.

 I was about to install a LINUX partition to see if I would have better 
 luck with netCDF on a sensible os.  Seems this might not be the case!
