Python output only for 2.5 ??

Post by vonBrabant » Sat Nov 17, 2007 3:58 pm

Hi,
I'm just testing the Python output of the recorder and have some problems with my Python 2.4. imp.load_dynamic isn't working, and if I replace it with import RanorexPython as Ranorex, Ranorex.FormFind doesn't work.

So I wonder if the output is Python 2.5 specific ??

Thanks

The generated Python scripts are not specific to Python 2.5. However, the code assumes that the RanorexPython.dll is in the same directory as the generated Python script file.

So, please be sure to have the RanorexPython.dll and the RanorexCore.dll in the same directory as the Python script you want to interpret.

Okay, thanks for the reply.
However, I installed now Python 2.5 and everything is now working.

It is actually simpler than you describe it !
With Python2.5 one can still copy RanorexPython.dll and RanorexCore.dll in the Python25/DLLs folder and load the module with "import RanorexPython as Ranorex". The only trick is to rename RanorexPython.dll to RanorexPython.pyd. This works because internally a pyd is a dll.
Just wanted to let you know.
