## Description

When importing scipy.ndimage from either a python console or script an ImportError is raised:

In [1]: import scipy.ndimage --------------------------------------------------------------------------- ImportError Traceback (most recent call last) <ipython-input-1-ca78d1949b6c> in <module>() ----> 1 import scipy.ndimage C:\OSGEO4~1\apps\Python27\lib\site-packages\scipy\ndimage\__init__.py in <module>() 170 from __future__ import division, print_function, absolute_import 171 --> 172 from .filters import * 173 from .fourier import * 174 from .interpolation import * C:\OSGEO4~1\apps\Python27\lib\site-packages\scipy\ndimage\filters.py in <module>() 35 from . import _ni_support 36 from . import _nd_image ---> 37 from scipy.misc import doccer 38 39 __all__ = ['correlate1d', 'convolve1d', 'gaussian_filter1d', 'gaussian_filter', C:\OSGEO4~1\apps\Python27\lib\site-packages\scipy\misc\__init__.py in <module>() 45 from .common import * 46 from numpy import who, source, info as _info ---> 47 from scipy.special import comb, factorial, factorial2, factorialk 48 49 import sys C:\OSGEO4~1\apps\Python27\lib\site-packages\scipy\special\__init__.py in <module>() 544 from __future__ import division, print_function, absolute_import 545 --> 546 from ._ufuncs import * 547 548 from .basic import * ImportError: DLL load failed: The specified module could not be found.

This happens for scipy version 0.14.0

I am getting this error again after OSGeo4W adopted version 1.11.0. The problem has been confirmed on multiple computers in my office.

Maybe upgrade scipy to a more recent version, as there seem to be a conflict betweet the two packages in the current versions.

fixed with numpy-1.11.0-2 (x86_64) (1.11.0-1 was missing fortran dlls)

**Note:**See TracTickets for help on using tickets.

The problem was caused by using a more recent version of numpy (1.11.x) than the one distributed with OSGeo4W (1.8.x). scipy.ndimage imports correctly when the proper version of numpy is used.
