Hi everyone!
Am new to python, getting grounded in it as fast as i can but now, i have some issues. I use the web2py framework for web development. At the moment, am working on a blog using one of the CMS (named InstantPress) designed in web2py also.

While editing the blog, i needed to upload a new logo i created for the blog but i get an error written: "<type 'exceptions.ImportError'> Requires PIL installed in your system."

This clearly shows that i don't have Python Imaging Library (PIL) The problem now is this, i've installed the PIL but i still get same error, please could there be any other thing wrong and how can i know if my PIL is installed?

Here's a little info on my system to help my helpers:

operating system: Windows 7 64Bit
Interpreter: python 2.7.2 (Windows AMD64 / Intel 64 / X86-64 binary)
framework: web2py version 1.99.4 (stable)

Many Thanks

have you tried this version of PIL?

it's for windows 64. I had some similar problems with my PIL, having my OS on 64 and that library on 32 bits... Duno...

The File is very much the same as the one from the python.org website and still have the same issues.

Did yours work when you tried?
