Gvim 7.2 with Python 2.5/2.6 support Windows binaries

Using the excellent instructions at ShowMeDo Jack Atkinson, I built a version of both Gvim and Vim for Windows with support for Python 2.5 and for Python 2.6.

Python 2.4: Support is already built-in in Gvim 7.2

Python 2.5: Install Gvim 7.2 and replace vim.exe and gvim.exe with the files in gvim72python25.zip

Python 2.6: Install Gvim 7.2 and replace vim.exe and gvim.exe with the files in gvim72python26.zip

Python 3.1: I wasn’t able to build Gvim 7.2 with Python 3.1 (most probably due to the backwards incompatible changes in Python 3)

To determine what version of Python your Gvim installation supports use the following command in Gvim:

python import sys; print sys.version

Thanks for these. Saves me heaps of
time compiling — the python2.6 seem
to work with my environment.

Thank you very much for making these! I was really not in the mood for compiling Vim on Windows. :)

Hi

I just tried these builds under winxp64 and it does not work for me. I am first getting runtime error then bunch of python errors.

Also ensure that if python 2.6 has just been installed on Windows, the python26 folder is included in the PATH environment variable.

Some time ago, I really needed to buy a building for my organization but I didn’t have enough cash and couldn’t purchase something. Thank heaven my dude adviced to get the loan at reliable bank. Thence, I acted that and was satisfied with my collateral loan.

This doesn’t seem to be working for omnicomplete. What was the path to the python that you set during compilation?

By D W. June 30th, 2010 at 20:12

This worked perfectly. Thanks for posting.
