I’m running SWIG 1.3.40 on W7 64 with no problems. 32-bit code normally works fine on 64-bit OSs.

 

Personally I don’t need to set up any environment variables to use SWIG.

 

What else do you need to know?

Subject: [Swig-user] Windows 7 installation of SWIG

 

Dear all,

I realize this is a bit of a beginner's question, but I'm having trouble installing SWIG on my 64-bit W7 system. Running the executable seemed not to do much, although I believe it is written for a 32-bit system so this might make sense.

I am trying to install SWIG on this machine so I can use C/C++ modules in Python scripts. I have looked at the manual for installing for windows, but unfortunately it simply did not help me at all (this is undoubtedly due to a lack of knowledge/experience on my side. For example, 'setting the environment variables' is something I am not familiar with, so this section of the manual leaves me uncertain of what to do and at which point)...is there any more detailed guide available for installing SWIG on Windows, even if this requires more steps than just running the executable? Or is there perhaps someone kind enough to help me out with this directly?

Thank you for any help you may be able to provide!

Jon
