I'm unable to get Python to run in Csound 6.10.0 using CsoundQt 0.95 under Windows 7 64-bit. When I insert the pyinit opcode into the "Hello World" .csd, the message is:
error: syntax error, unexpected NEWLINE (token "") from file C:/Users/Jim/Documents/csound/Hello World.csd (1)
Unexpected untyped word pyinit when expecting a variable
When I run any .csd that will run, I get this at the top of the console:
Here's where it gets puzzling: (1) Yes, I installed the Python components when I installed Csound. (2) py.dll is definitely in plugins64 -- though that double backslash in the error message is a bit odd, as it suggests a nameless directory or something. (3) Yes, I've downloaded and installed Python 2.7.14. (4) However, Python 2.7.14 is _only_ available in a 32-bit version, and Csound 6.10.0 is _only_ available in a 64-bit version.
This would seem clearly to imply that
the Python opcodes can in no circumstance be used in Csound 6.10
in Windows. Am I correct in concluding this? If so, isn't this a
The 32-bit "minimal" version of Csound
6.08.1 for Windows does not come with an installer. That would
qualify it as minimal, I suppose. What else it may be missing, I
wouldn't know. The readme for 6.08 tells me that I will need to
add the bin directory to my system path (which I don't know how
to do) and also create an OPCODE6DIR64 system variable that
points to this 'lib' folder (which I also don't know how to do).
Step-by-step instructions would be useful.
Alternatively, I could run the 6.08.1
32-bit installer. Where it might be archived, I would have no
idea. There seems to be no link to it on the github page.
I note also that csound~ seems only to be available in a 64-bit version. I have this weird idea that someday in the not too distant future I might like to use a Python opcode or two while running csound~ in Max. Am I right in assuming that that is not currently possible -- that I have to choose between Python and csound~? And if so, how would I configure my system so as to point csound~ to 6.10 while otherwise using 6.08?
Have the Python opcodes joined the choir invisible? Are they pushin' up daisies? Or are they just pinin' for the fjords?

Python for Windows 64bit seems to be available here:
It can’t be the case that the Python opcodes cannot be run on Windows as Rory reported running them ok.
