Use Numpy within Vortex Editor

Dear all,

I have a question regarding the external distribution of Python using in Vortex. I tried to use the module numpy within Python, but did not succeed to use it. In Anaconda I can use the Numpy module but in Vortex not.


The version of Python I use within Vortex is: 2.7.13 |Anaconda custom (64-bit)| (default, Sep 30 2017, 11:12:42) [MSC v.1500 64 bit (AMD64)]


The error I get in Vortex:

Traceback (most recent call last):

File "<string>", line 22, in <module>

File "c:\ProgramData\Anaconda2\Lib\site-packages\numpy\", line 142, in <module>

from . import add_newdocs

File "c:\ProgramData\Anaconda2\Lib\site-packages\numpy\", line 13, in <module>

from numpy.lib import add_newdoc

File "c:\ProgramData\Anaconda2\Lib\site-packages\numpy\lib\", line 8, in <module>

from .type_check import *

File "c:\ProgramData\Anaconda2\Lib\site-packages\numpy\lib\", line 11, in <module>

import numpy.core.numeric as _nx

File "c:\ProgramData\Anaconda2\Lib\site-packages\numpy\core\", line 26, in <module>

raise ImportError(msg)



Importing the multiarray numpy extension module failed. Most

likely you are trying to import a failed build of numpy.

If you're working with a numpy git repo, try `git clean -xdf` (removes all

files not under version control). Otherwise reinstall numpy.

Original error was: DLL load failed: The specified module could not be found.


So the numpy module is found by Vortex, but I still get the above error.


Can you help me finding a solution for this problem?

Hi Jauke,

Here is some information for using Python with Vortex Studio:

For your case:

Vortex 2018a should work with Anaconda, so Python 2.7.13 and numpy 1.11.3.
