Chilkat for Python 2.7.* Windows Install Instructions

1. Download

Download the binary distribution and unzip to any directory.
Note: Python may run as a 32-bit process even on a 64-bit computer. If this is the case, then download the 32-bit build.

32-bit Download: chilkat-9.5.0-python-2.7-win32.zip

64-bit Download: chilkat-9.5.0-python-2.7-x64.zip

The download contains the following files:

	_chilkat.pyd
	chilkat.py
	Install_Instructions.txt
	license.txt
	showPythonPath.bat
	showPythonPath.py
	showPythonVersion.bat
	showPythonVersion.py
	showSitePackagesDir.bat
	showSitePackagesDir.py
	testChilkat.bat
	testChilkat.py
	zipTest.bat
	zipTest.py

2. Verify Python 2.7.* is Installed

Run showPythonVersion.bat to verify that Python 2.7.* is the installed version of Python.

3. Find the site-packages Directory

Run showSitePackagesDir.bat to list the "site-packages" directories. For example:

	['C:\Python27', 'C:\Python27\lib\site-packages']

4. Move Files to site-packages Directory

Move _chilkat.pyd and chilkat.py to the site-packages directory. (Make sure that _chilkat.pyd and chilkat.py only exist in the site-packages directory and nowhere else.)

The Chilkat module will be loaded via the import chilkat statement. Python searches for the module in the paths listed in sys.path (Run showPythonPath to view the directories in sys.path). Technically, the _chilkat.pyd and chilkat.py files may be copied to any of the sys.path directories. The convention is to install 3rd party modules in site-packages.

5. Run the testChilkat.py Sample to Verify

Run testChilkat.bat (which runs testChilkat.py) to verify that the Chilkat module can be found and loaded. The testChilkat.py program instantiates a number of Chilkat objects and displays the Version property of each.
