I have now tried it out.
The good news is at:
It seems to work, but needs probably some testing. I am not an expert, but is
it usefull with only the vtkXXXPython.dll's? I was expecting that everything
needed yo have a running vtk would be there, including vtkXXXX.dll.
The (not so) bad news is that I had to use some persuasion:
- copy source/__init__.py and source/vtk.pth to build directory
- create a vtk directory with subdirectories gtk, qt, test, tk, util and wx
Was it my mistake (bad path?).
