Windows install guide from Ettus Research: missing important note

Current guide
(http://code.ettus.com/redmine/ettus/projects/uhd/wiki/GNURadio_Windows)
missed one important note, which is non-trivial and cause such
unexperienced
users as me to waste a lot of time and nerves fighting obscure DLL
ImportError failures !
On PyQT dependency should be noted, that you should UNCHECK extra
options
(such as “Qt runtime”) during PyQT install
.

To help other users on the web experiencing this problem find this:

windows gnuradio python py2.7 PyQt4 PyQwt qtgui ‘QT GUI’

from gnuradio import qtgui

_qtgui_swig = swig_import_helper()

_mod = imp.load_module(’_qtgui_swig’, fp, pathname, description)
ImportError: DLL load failed:

(ImportError: DLL load failed: The specified procedure could not be
found.)
(ImportError: DLL load failed: ═х эрщфхэр єърчрээр яЁюЎхфєЁр.)

Thanks for the feedback, Artem!

We’ll take a look at it today.

Cheers,
Ben

This is the first thing that came to my mind, but I have to dissapoint
you.
It’s not root cause, because I played a lot with order of folders on
PATH
and it didn’t helped. I used Dependency Walker, but it also didn’t
helped
me a lot. At least, things are more complicated than this suggestion.
Currently I so angry and tired with all this gnu->windows porting shit,
that I have absolutely no interest to investigate it. I just hate it.

Thanks to Artem P… That was a lifesaver tip. I could not find
any
other way around that error.

But instead of removing all extra options "such as “Qt runtime”, it
was
enough to remove only the Qt runtime option.

Hi, Ben, please do include it in the web instructions at least as a
caveat
for those who do get this error.

B
