I’ve just installed psychopy on a new Windows PC (Windows 7 SP1 64 bit, on a Dell OptiPlex 9020) for testing in our lab, but encountered some problems. After installing, if I try to open psychopy nothing happens. It doesn’t open at all, nothing comes up, and no process is visible in task manager for it either.
"C:\Program Files\PsychoPy3\python.exe" -m psychopy.app.psychopyApp in cmd as per the troubleshooting page, and it spits out some errors. It tracks down at its base to:
File "C:\Program Files\PsychoPy3\lib\ctypes\__init__.py", line 348, in __init__ self._handle = _dlopen(self._name, mode) OSError: [WinError 126] The specified module could not be found
along with some other errors that are above it (see attached picture)
This is really weird, and happens when i try to install either PsychoPY3.2020.1.1 or 1.2 for win64, both give me the same error. Any ideas on how this might be fixable (if at all?)
