import url lib error


I am trying to use the python modules urllib and urllib2 in my scripts. No problem when running on 8.3.3 on OS X, they import fine and can be used, but on Windows 7 64 bits I get the following error:

no module named _socket
import urllib

Has anyone seen this before? Does the python version included in SecureCRT 8.3.3 on windows not include the socket module? Thank you.

Hi ngrison,

Correct, SecureCRT does not have native support for the _socket Python module on Windows as discussed in many other posts in the forums:


I have added this thread to a feature request in our product enhancement database to add native support for _socket Python module on Windows. Should a future release of SecureCRT include this feature, notification will be posted here.

If you prefer direct email notification, send an email to support@vandyke.com and include "Feature Request - Forum Thread #13127" in the subject line or use this form from the support page of our website.
