I recently installed QGIS 2.4, but Python does not load. I am running on a Windows 64 bit machine.
I receive the error message "Couldn't load SIP module Python support will be disabled".
Traceback (most recent call last): File "", line 1, in ImportError: DLL load failed: %1 is not a valid Win32 application.
I have another installation of Python at C:/Python27. It is the 32-bit version.
When I remove C:/Python27 folder, QGIS works fine, so there is some linkage between the new QGIS installation and the C:/Python27 python interpreter. I can't permanently delete C:/Python because I need it for other applications, so I am wondering if there are any suggestion as to how to fix this.
