I get the "ImportError: No module named SimpleCV" regardless of whether i use the command line or opening SimpleCV from my IDE. My IDE does not list SimpleCV as one of the sugestions when I type "import".

The command i used is as follows, as the keyword python is not stored as a path. I still get the exact same error:

C:\python27\python.exe -c "import SimpleCV.Shell;SimpleCV.Shell.main()"

I am running windows 7 32bit. I installed the superpack from the website are there any additional modules I need?

During the super \pack installation these lines failed, but the installation continued without them:

SETX PATH C:/Python27/;C:/Python27/Scripts/;C:/OpenCV2.3/opencv/build/x86/vc10/bin/;%PATH%
SETX PYTHONPATH C:/OpenCV2.3/opencv/build/python/2.7/;%PYTHONPATH%

I tried this: C:\python27\python.exe -c "import SimpleCV.Shell;SimpleCV.Shell.main()" and it doesn't work. I still get the exact same error

I had this error message as well, but SimpleCV works fine. Did you try this line in the Windows execute (

python -c "import SimpleCV.Shell;SimpleCV.Shell.main()"

Things should be installed, I think what happened was your path was messed up for some reason. Did you try running the commands it failed on again in from the command line?

I think what is happening is your path isn't being updated. So it doesn't know where to find SimpleCV. That command basically can be done through a GUI as well, if you follow a guide like this one you can basically copy and paste the paths being added with setx. Hopefully this works for you, sorry you are having issues.
