Installation failed on Windows 10

See original GitHub issue

I installed TDL on Windows 10 by running pip install tdl from an elevated (administrator) command-prompt. This is necessary because I installed for all users, and presumably my current user doesn’t have access to change C:\ProgramFiles\WhereverPythonLives.

After that, when I execute import tdl from Python 3.6.4, I get this error:

File "C:\Users\me\Code\furusiya\furusiya\io\adapters\", line 2, in <module>
    import tdl
  File "C:\Program Files (x86)\Python36-32\lib\site-packages\tdl\", line 65, in <module>
    from tcod import ffi as _ffi
  File "C:\Program Files (x86)\Python36-32\lib\site-packages\tcod\", line 20, in <module>
    from tcod.libtcodpy import *
  File "C:\Program Files (x86)\Python36-32\lib\site-packages\tcod\", line 10, in <module>
    from tcod.libtcod import *
  File "C:\Program Files (x86)\Python36-32\lib\site-packages\tcod\", line 87, in <module>
    from tcod._libtcod import lib, ffi
ImportError: DLL load failed: The specified module could not be found.

Any idea what I’m doing wrong? I have a fresh install of Python 3.6.4, I didn’t install anything other than TDL yet.

I guess you might need the Visual C++ Redistributables, I thought they were included in Python, but I must have been wrong.

I installed the 2017 64-bit distributable from here (found via Google) and it works now.

Thanks so much for your help with this!
