Win2k and mingw gnu compiler with Python 2.3.2?

P: n/a
I'm trying to understand and document how to install pypar on Win2k.
Pypar needs to be installed with some MPI library code and also needs
libpython23.a and other files which are not included with the python
Windows binary installation. I've got that worked out but still no
success.

Here's the error message I'm seeing:
python setup.py install
running install
running build
running build_py
running build_ext
error: Python was built with version 6 of Visual Studio, and extensions need tobe built with the same version of the compiler, but it isn't

installed.

I also get the error if I use gcc directly. I'm trying to use the
mingw version of the gnu compiler in a command window (not cygwin). I
have made this appoach work on python 2.2 but not 2.3. Does anyone
know of a work-around or at least what might be happening? I'm more
of a scripter, not a full-time programmer, and moving quickly out of
my depth on this one.

It's a pain, isn't it?

Something like

python setup.py install -cmingw32
? But if that is the problem, dunno why you were getting away with it
on 2.2.

John,

Still no luck. When I run "build" I do use the compiler flag as
shown:

C:>python setup.py build --compiler=mingw32
C:>running build
C:>running build_py
C:>running build_ext
C:>

This seems to work fine. The "install" command will not accept a
compiler option. Thanks for the suggestion though.

The error
"Python was built with version 6 of Visual Studio, and extensions
need to be built with the same version of the compiler, but it
isn't installed."

appears to be a windows issue related to the compiler used to build
the binary installer version. I could not find mention at python.org
of who actually produces the windows installer and also couldn't find
a credit in the installer itself. Could someone point me to an
appropriate contact or email to report this? It doesn't appear to be
a python language issue.

I'm sure that this has come up on the Distutils-SIG mailing list, and ISTR
someone came up with a workaround. I suggest a scan of the list archives.
