Adding external python modules into TestComplete
I'm trying to add the gnupg module https://gnupg.readthedocs.io/en/latest/ to TestComplete. I have referenced https://support.smartbear.com/testcomplete/docs/scripting/specifics/python.html#importing-packages&_...
I have added the gnupg.py file to C:\Program Files (x86)\SmartBear\TestComplete 14\Bin\Extensions\Python\Python36\Lib
and restarted TestComplete. When I try to import the module (import gnupg), TestComplete says 'no module named gnupg'
Is there another step that I am missing?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Wow, I am getting the same. I tried installing it with pip and copying everything over, I tried copying just the gnupg.py file across... still nothing.
Just to check, have you installed gnupg's dependencies?
@sonya_m Maybe the support page could do with some more examples of installing third-party packages in python. It just says to "put them here", but does that mean we need to install them with pip first and copy them over? Or do we download the package .tar.gz from pypi and extract it directly into the Lib directory?

Yep, I also installed the package via pip, and then copied the gnupg.py file into the specified SmartBear directory. I then installed the full Gp4Win as well as the gnupg-w32cli-1.4 binary. My code fails on the import, before the I can even get to the code that creates the GPG object using the w32cli binary.
gpg = gnupg.GPG(gnupghome='/path/to/home/directory')
from os import sys sys.path.insert(0, 'C:\\Users\\justin.kim\\AppData\\Local\\Programs\\Python\\Python36\\Lib\\site-packages') import gnupg
instead of copying the packages into the tc directory, i do this instead and it seems to work... have you given this a try
@tphillips , I've notified the documentation team about this page's contents!
