    This is the line I get in the log file

    # Python version 2.7.4 (default, Apr 6 2013, 19:54:46) [MSC v.1500 32 bit (Intel)] for win32

    Thank you so much for your effort supporting me.

    That looks fine. It's not the version I ship by default (have not updated to 2.7.4 yet) but it will work. I guess you must have previously installed Python on your system at some stage, or maybe some other app that installs a python dll.

    Yes, I have different version of Python already installed on my machines.

    I've updated the Windows versions of Glade to Python 2.7.4. The DLL's supplied in the distribution have been meticulously checked that they are correct i.e. the 32 bit Glade is supplied with a 32 bit python27.dll and the 64 bit Glade is supplied with a 64 bit DLL.

    If you install Python on windows from http://www.python.org, be aware that their Windows installer is broken, at least if you're running Windows 7 with a 64 bit cpu:

    1. If you install the x86 (32 bit) version it puts a 32 bit python27.dll into C:windowssystem32 (wrong!) and C:windowssyswow64 (correct)

    2. If you try and install the x64 (64 bit) version to a seperate location, it does not change any existing DLLs from step 1, and even if you delete the DLLs it does not install the 64 bit DLL in C:windowssystem32.

    3. If you uninstall python from your system, delete any python27.dll files, and then install the x64 version of Python it seems to get it right. But then installing the 32 bit version does not install any 32 bit DLLs, aargh!

    BTW you *must* have a Python installation on your Windows machine in order for Python to find necessary library files. As above you can download Python 2.7.4 from http://www.python.org.

    Your PYTHONPATH environment variable on Windows should look something like this:

    C:Python27-x86Lib;C:Python27-x86libs;C:Python27-x86DLLs;%GLADE_HOME%

    On Windows (64 bit), PCs with Dell's Backup and Recovery software causes a crash on Qt5 applications (such as Glade).

    See http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/software-os/f/3526/t/19634253 for more details.

    The only solution is to uninstall the Dell Backup and Recovery software until Dell can fix the problem.
