    TableauSDK Import Error

    Douglas Lam



      I installed TableauSDK 9.3 on Window 2012 R2, but got the error below when I tried to import the module. I verified that I was running on Python 2.7.11 32bit and installed TableauSDK 32bit version. Any suggestions on how to resolve this error?


      Successfully installed pip-8.1.1

      Python 2.7.11 (v2.7.11:6d1b6a68f775, Dec  5 2015, 20:32:19) [MSC v.1500 32 bit (Intel)] on win32

      Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
