I don't think anybody is working on threshold Paillier. Janus Dam Nielsen and Marc X. Makkes have been working on a more efficient implementation of Paillier by using a C-based Python extension. As I understand it, this is just to cut down on the time spent in local computation. >>> Which platform are you on?

Perhaps one of the windows-savvy people on this list can help you more or at least look at the errors. > All the best for your thesis.
