Win 98 with Python 2.5--matplotlib and Numpy problem

P: n/a
I'm trying to figure out why an application that both myself and a colleague
use gives errors when he uses it under W98. I'm using XP. Py 2.5 is
installed on each of our machines. His first problem came with matplotlib
that pointed to the "from pylab ..." line below. The message ended with
" ... from matplotlib.path: import affine_transform.
Import Error. One of the library functions needed to run this application
could not be found."

I told him to remark the line
from pylab import plot, xlabel, ylabel, title, show, xticks, bar

My thinking was that he need not use any of the new plot facilities in the
app. That seemed to do the trick, but then he encountered a msg that said:

Assertion failed in PROGRAN 2008/NUMPY-1.20-Win32K Superpack
....
Press Retry to Debug the application. JT must be enabled.

Clearly things have gone astray. Is numpy somehow not compatible with PY 2.5?

numpy when compiled against python2.5 is perfectly compatible with
python2.5. However this does not tell you anything if you run an
application compiled on recent windows on a very old one.

I guess this could be worked out but I don't know if the user base
with win98 is large enough to justify this. If you feel desperate,
you could always get the compiler and try your luck.

Otoh you collegue could just abhore the windows and use something
different on his hardware :-) With fvwm98 it would even look like :-)

Yes, taking win98 out of the picture would help. That'll likely be my next
step in trying to solve his problem. I'm just trying to clear the air that
it isn't the OS.

Unfortunately, when this "free' app became available 2-3 years ago, they
made the claim, simplicity or explicitly, that it would run on any Win OS.
They really don't have the resources to keep looking back to some ancient
win OSes. The users became driven by buying old PCs for this, and now I
think this colleague is stuck with a problem.

Not only is the OS possibly a culprit, but buying a new OS will likely cost
him bucks, and others. It probably gets worse for some who use this appl
regularly. They can't update to new features as they come along. It's quite
probably a new feature (and Win 98) are the problem. It's the first time
they've tried to use matplotlib.
