Joseph, > Thanks for the response but to build scientific python with netcdf I need > netcdf.h which is not included in the zip file. > I got a netcdf.h but I am not sure if it matches the netcdf.dll that I built. > Hence it builds ok but will not run properly with the netcdf. There is a netcdf.h included with each of the zip files available for download from the link I referred to: http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/netcdf/docs/faq.html#windows_netcdf4 The zip files were for two different styles of Fortran calling C conventions, so if you're not using Fortran, it probably doesn't matter which you use: ftp://ftp.unidata.ucar.edu/pub/netcdf/contrib/win32/win32_vs_PGI_dll_4.0.1.zip ftp://ftp.unidata.ucar.edu/pub/netcdf/contrib/win32/win32_vs_f2c_dll_4.0.1.zip If you use one of those, you also need the other 3 zip files mentioned for zlib, hdf5, and szlib also available from the Unidata FTP site. The 4.x dll is a drop-in replacement for the netcdf-3 dll, so there is no need to build a netcdf-3 dll from the old netcdf-3 sources. --Russ > -----Original Message----- > From: Unidata netCDF Support [mailto:address@hidden > Sent: Wednesday, 15 September 2010 1:21 AM > To: Joseph Shanahan > Cc: address@hidden; address@hidden > Subject: [netCDF #TPP-606554]: Getting the NetCDF files to compile Scientific > Python for Python 2.6 an esri installation of python > > Hi Joseph, > > > I appear to be having difficulty getting the correct NetCDF binaries > > files to build Scientific Python on windows.
