Installing Scipy Error on Windows 7

In reverse, I messed up my scipy / numpy installation on my IntelX64 / Windows 7 / Python 2.7 machine. I did this while trying to play around with some neural network libraries (lasagne / theano).

To fix this, I uninstalled / reinstalled python 2.7.9 completely. After that, I went to to download and install numpy and scipy using the commands:

pip install C:\Users\me\Documents\numpy-1.9.2+mkl-cp27-none-win_amd64.whl


It went well and worked well. (I can import numpy from python)

pip install C:\Users\me\Documents\scipy-0.15.1-cp27-none-win_amd64.whl


It's also good. Except for the error in the python console:

>>> from scipy import stats



Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line1, in <module>
  File "C:\Python27\lib\site-packages\scipy\stats\", line 338, in <module>
    from .stats import *
  File "C:\Python27\lib\site-packages\scipy\stats\", line 184, in <module>
    import scipy.special as special
  File "C:\Python27\lib\site-packages\scipy\special\", line 586, in <module>
    from ._ufuncs import *
ImportError: DLL load failed: The specified module could not be found.


I read the required DLLs and ran the "walking walker" ( ) on "c: \ python27 \ lib \ site-packages \ scipy \ special_UFUNCS.PYD" and it seems there are multiple DLLs that were not found.


and a 6 files that look like 'api-ms-win-....dll'


From my point of view, people solved this by reinstalling numpy and then scipy. I tried this and the same happens.

Does anyone else come across this problem and solve it?

I fixed this by completely removing everything (python and packages) and then installing everything again.

Just reinstalling the corrupting packages didn't work. The system also did not recover. I won't accept this answer because uninstall / install is working on a real problem. I just want to post this to help anyone else in this position.



Just install "NumPy-1.9 + MKL" on this page it should work fine.

Confirmation: another post here :)
