EVE Asset Builder Installation Problem
« on: March 20, 2020, 04:30:56 AM »

I installed EVE Asset Builder with the default options, but when I try to convert any image files I get the following errors:
====================================================================================
Select Images!
Images are ready to convert!
C:/Users/Mike/Documents/Project Scratchfolder/Test Image Converter is selected as output folder.
C:/Users/Mike/Documents/EVE Asset Builder/Assets For Test/Image Converter Test/png/case1.png conversion is in progress...
Conversion failed!

[4724] Failed to execute script eab_tools
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "eab_tools.py", line 13, in <module>
  File "c:\python37-32\lib\site-packages\PyInstaller\loader\pyimod03_importers.py", line 627, in exec_module

  File "site-packages\zopfli.py", line 28, in <module>
ImportError: DLL load failed: The specified module could not be found.

======================================================================================

Is there a dependency that didn't get installed or a path that needs to be changed? [I don't have a directory c:\python37-32]

Hello,

Can you try uninstalling and reinstalling EAB with admin privileges?

I believe that EAB should install Python during its own installation process, but if the error persists you can download Python from the following:
https://www.python.org/downloads/

Now I'm really annoyed.

I tried what you said- uninstalled EAB, reinstalled it as Admin... no change.

I manually installed Python. You didn't say which version so I tried the current version (3.8) and multiple prior versions (3.7) but none of them help.

I researched the error and found a lot of people describing the same problem when they try to make a Python app into a standalone install-able app and fail to identify all the dependencies correctly and include them in the runtime distribution. Here's some of the search results:

https://discuss.mxnet.io/t/pyinstaller-package-mxnet-program-error-on-win10/4240

Please test installing EAB 1.2 on a "fresh" machine that's never had Python or any version of EAB intstalled, then try running the image convert feature.

I suspect that it's not that I need Python installed, I need a Python package your developer had installed on his/her workstation and failed to include in the distributable code. 

Incidentally, the image converter in the Cleo tools package works fine on the same computer, it just doesn't allow me to see and control what graphic binary format it's storing in.

Hello,

Thanks for giving this a try, I have passed your query on to the development team.
Hopefully they should be able to provide a resolution.

Hello,

I tried at my side on a clean PC but could not replicate the same problem.
We can use EAB to convert the font successfully.

EAB 1.2 is using python 3.6.5 to generate the executable. Can you try installing Python 3.6.5?
Also can provide the screenshot of the error message when you run the font converter on EAB.

I have EXACTLY the same problem. I need to use Asset Builder to create some fonts, so I installed a brand new Windows 10 system on my Mac using Parallels. I downloaded the package and installed it successfully. I can read fonts in, but when I try to convert them, I get the same library import error as OP.

The distribution is definitely defective. If it is working for anybody, it is likely because there was stuff lying around from older versions or some such.

Please help.
