ImportError: DLL load failed: The specified module could not be found

I have installed Python 2.5.4, Numpy 1.5.0 win32, Matplotlib 1.0.0 win32, pywin32 218. Still not able to plot graphs in Python. Here is the error I am getting :

from matplotlib.pylab import *
File "C:\Python25\lib\site-packages\matplotlib\pylab.py", line 216, in <module>
from matplotlib import mpl # pulls in most modules
File "C:\Python25\lib\site-packages\matplotlib\mpl.py", line 1, in <module>
from matplotlib import artist

File "C:\Python25\lib\site-packages\matplotlib\transforms.py", line 34, in <module>
from matplotlib._path import affine_transform
ImportError: DLL load failed: The specified module could not be found.

Answer

(I found this answer from a video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xmvRF7koJ5E)

  1. Download msvcp71.dll and msvcr71.dll from the web.

  2. Save them to your C:\Windows\System32 folder.

  3. Save them to your C:\Windows\SysWOW64 folder as well (if you have a 64-bit operating system).

Now try running your code file in Python and it will load the graph in couple of seconds.
