Failed install in windows 7

I installed simpleCV using the superpack and have not been able to get anything to work. Running

import SimpleCV

I get the following error

Traceback (most recent call last): File "<pyshell#9>", line 1, in <module> import SimpleCV File "C:\Python27\lib\site-packages\", line 3, in <module> from SimpleCV.base import * File "C:\Python27\lib\site-packages\SimpleCV\", line 59, in <module> raise ImportError("Cannot load OpenCV library which is required by SimpleCV") ImportError: Cannot load OpenCV library which is required by SimpleCV

This is right after the install. Also I am not sure if there is supposed to be a simpleCV executable file but I have nothing like that (was running that in python).

Hello, did you tried creating a PYTHONPATH environment variable with the path "C :/ OpenCV2.3/opencv/build/python/2.7 /" and added "C:\Python27, C:\Python27\Scripts\, C:\OpenCV2.3\opencv\build\x86\VC10\bin\;" to the Path environment variable?
