Download only latest Python builds

OpenCV 2.4.2 is released and windows executable is about 215 MB size.

It will be very difficult to download this much every time, atleast to those who have low speed internet connection.

I know it can be built from source. But every time I try to build it, it ends up in errors which is difficult for me to understand.

So is there a way to download the python module alone, ie ..\opencv\build\python\2.7\cv2.pyd file? Or does OpenCV developers store their latest builds somewhere we can access it?

Thank you!!!

What type of errors are you getting? If these are temporary problems because of active development in the trunk, you can try to use tagged versions, i.e. But if you're always getting build errors, you should either configure your environment or submit a bug. Builds from trunk should be OK most of the time, please let us know if it is not the case. Please use for this.

Partial Python/Windows builds are not available at the moment, but we can discuss it. Those who need it, please do +1 this question ;-)
