Python and Win95B

P: n/a
I've just installed Python 2.5 under Win95B, and when run it says "The
PYTHON25.DLL file is linked to missing export
KERNEL32.DLL.GetFileAttributesExA".

Does Python 2.5 not run under Win95? If not, is there an earlier version of
Python which does?

Thanks,
Ciarán Ó Duibhín.

Apparently not. I knew this would be a problem when I wrote the code
that uses GetFileAttributes; I then forgot to fix it before the
release was made, and nobody reported that problem during the beta
tests. If you think it should be fixed, please report it to
sf.net/projects/python.

This specific problem shouldn't exist in Python 2.4, and I recall
that I tested some 2.4 release on Windows 95.

Thanks. Python 2.4.3 is fine.
