true, will it be extended to win64 in teh future?
thanks in advance

    WindowsError: [Error 14001] The application has failed to start
    because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the
    application event log for more detail
    This is a configuration error on your system. The application you are
    trying to start is incorrectly installed - it's not only that Python
    can't start it, but nobody can.

    Regards,
    Martin

    but python runs happy otherwise, only this call to subprocess resulted
    in an err. does anyone know for sure subprocess runs on win64? or
    any others like, popen does?
    thanks

    Subprocess runs another program. It's the program you are running that's
    giving the error, Python is merely reporting it.

    Hi!
    side-by-side configuration is incorrect
    Others have given you an explanation.

    A possibility: you use a DLL directly, without having installed.
    That is OK with some DLL, and no OK with others DLL.

    It may sound strange, but even in 64-bit Python on Win64,
    sys.plattform=="win32".

    You can check that subprocess is working, e.g. with
    subprocess.call('dir', shell=True)

    You are more likely to get a helpful answer if you give a minimal
    example and explain exactly what 'not [works fine]' means. What did
    happen? Include full error traceback if there was one.
