Hi Thomas

I now have the following 2 setups on my machine (Windows XP Professional, SP3)

The first is 

Python 2.4.4

This setup works just fine when I run the Millionaires example. (with --no-ssl 

The second setup is identical to the one in your e-mail.

When I run the Millionaires example (again with --no-ssl option)  with the Path 
set to point to Python 2.6.4, I get the following error message.

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "generate-config-files.py", line 57, in <module>
    from viff.config import generate_configs
ImportError: No module named viff.config

Hope this helps.

Best Wishes

I've just run the millionaires example using
Windows XP Pro SP3
Python 2.6.4
Twisted 9.0.0
GMPY 1.11
Win32 OpenSSL v. 0.9.8l Light
PyOpenSSL 0.10
It works fine for me when running with --no-ssl. With ssl turned on, I get a
Failure: twisted.internet.error.ConnectionLost: Connection to the
other side was lost in a non-clean fashion.
when connections are closed, but the millinonaires program gets executed anyway.
I agree that we should definitely try to make the installation process
easier, e.g. as Sriram suggests, by including the various dependencies
in the viff packages.
Sriram: Can you make it work with the above versions? If not, which
error messages do you see?
