Hi guys,

I have installed the SimpleCV 1.3 in my laptop running Win7 32 bits. The installation as run smoothly. Unfortunately it does not appear the icon/short-cut to launch the application. I tried to run using the command prompt after a few seconds waiting the application didn't launch and retrieved the following errors:

Traceback (most recent call last): File "C:\Python27\Scripts\", line 8, in <module> loadentrypoint('SimpleCV==1.3', 'consolescripts', 'simplecv')() File "C:\Python27\lib\site-packages\", line 318, in loadentry _point return getdistribution(dist).loadentrypoint(group, name) File "C:\Python27\lib\site-packages\", line 2221, in loadentr ypoint return ep.load() File "C:\Python27\lib\site-packages\", line 1954, in load entry = import(self.modulename, globals(),globals(), ['name']) 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

Please help.

Just a thought, but you may want to give the shell a bit of time the first time it runs. There are a lot resources that need to get built out during the first execution. I would also try to re-install OpenCV (we're sorry that it is such a beast). Let us know if you encounter any more problems after re-installing OpenCV.
