Thank you for the reply.  Turns out it was the Enthought EPD package I used to install everything.  "Dependency Walker" told me so.  Some fancy import stuff going on I think.  Installing the individually packages made it sing.

Love that jwz link by the way.  I actually laughed at function call humor.

Does it work if you have python *and* numpy installed, or just python?

(was the error message "specific" or "specified"?  The latter brings up
many more hits).  This may potentially occur because the DLL may have
dependencies that weren't included (and the error reported by the OS
is the same, so don't go blaming the application).  If the answer to the
above question was that numpy was installed as well then you may have to
use a utility like "DependencyWalker" (named from memory) that  should
indicate what the dependent DLLs that are required.
