Python 2.5.1

June 18, 2007

The standard Python 2.5.1 binaries in the Windows download are built with Visual C++ 7.1, which means that the python25.dll supplied references msvcr71.dll. If you’re linking python25.lib and building with Visual C++ 8, you’ll get a core dump.

Fortunately the source tarball has a VC8 project file that build right out of the box. So it was really no trouble to generate a python25.dll that uses msvcr80.dll. Kudos to the Pythonistas for having a well sorted build…
