I'm trying to execute the following code on a windows 7 system:
import qgis.core as qc qgis_path = "C:\Program Files\QGIS Lyon\apps\qgis" qc.QgsApplication.setPrefixPath(qgis_path, True) qc.QgsApplication.initQgis() print "Successfully Initialised"
The qc.QgsApplication.initQgis() command causes python to stop working. Can anyone help with the steps I need to diagnose this problem?
- I've tried a number of different combinations of forward slashes, escaped backslashes etc.for the path and still get the same error;
- I've been developing the code (part of a larger application) on Linux, without problems;
- A long time ago, I tested the code on Windows and it worked OK. At that time I had QGIS Dufour installed;
- I suspect it may have something to do with having the correct environment variables set, but have been unable to find a definitive guide on which and how these variables need to be set.
