I am running a Windows 7 machine with Python version 2.7.8 (32 bit). I installed QGIS 2.4 (Chugiak) from OSGeo4W and simply want to be able to import the QGIS Python modules (e.g. qgis.core) into the previously installed Python, in much the same way one can do so with arcpy.
I have Googled and set various folders in my PATH and PYTHONPATH environment variables but nothing seems to be able to let me say:
I just get the ol' module not found error. Has anyone else had success?
