Desktop App How do I run PyGlossary on Windows ?
#1  Bilingual 07-12-2020, 04:17 AM
Hello, all,

I'm trying to get PyGlossary up and running on a (very) small Windows system with not much success

I have downloaded 3.7.7(32b) from

I have downloaded pyglossary-3.2.1-py3-none-any.whl from

I have successfully installed PyGlossary using pip install from Console-Launcher It sits in the share directory nice and snug.

... and then .... NOTHING

I can't seem to activate the damn thing no matter what I try, and days of furious googeling has not helped me at all.

I tried activating pyglossary.pyw by "open with" python.exe, pythonw exe and all the launchers in the portable root directory to no avail.

What am I missing here?

Some progress ...

I can start pyglossary from the Console Launcher (using the full path .\app\python\share\pyglossary\pyglossary.pyw), but it quickly gives this error:

ImportError: cannot import name 'core' from partially initialized module 'pyglossary' (most likely due to a circular import)
... and of course aborts then and there.

Finally got things to work using the standard python install.

I now have a converted and somewhat usable Icelandic dictionary, I'll upload forthwith.
