[Solved] Problem installing simplecv on windows 7

I was trying to install simplecv using the superpack. I just downloaded and ran it, it ran ok, some python extensions were installed and also it didn't show any errors. But my oroblem is: when i try to run "import SimpleCV" it shows error: Traceback (most recent call last): File "<pyshell#0>", line 1, in <module> import SimpleCV ImportError: No module named SimpleCV which i guess is because SimpleCv wasnt installed sucessfully. Can anyone help me how to install it? Also is there any problem for these two things: 1. I also have 64-bit python installed, although i ran the commands from the 32-bit python. 2. It is just a fresh installation of python - no extra modules are installed.


Finally, I found that the problem was that i was installing the superpack while I was offline and so the download of simplecv files during the installation (yes, the installer does a part of the download from github while installing and doesnt report if that download fails - it always shows "simplecv installed" and auto-closes in 10 seconds - so I failed to notice for the first few times). So, the solution is simple- be online while installing and keep a eye if the download fails.

So the first question is did you use the superpack installer or did you install manually? The superpack will bail every once in awhile and fail to download the necessary packages. Try using the manual installation instructions to make sure all of the dependencies are installed.

I just saw this error while re-installing: Unable to set system paths.. Can someone tell me which system paths to add so that I can add them manually? Anyone with simplecv installed, can you tell me the system paths related to opencv that are there in your system path?
