Followed the instructions to build blender for python, but still can't import bpy

Hi :slight_smile:
I’m trying to build blender on windows.
I followed all the instructions and did make bpy, and copied the “D:\blender-git\build_windows_Bpy_x64_vc17_Release\bin\Release\bpy” directory into python’s site-packages.

But after trying:

python -c "import bpy, os; bpy.ops.wm.save_as_mainfile(filepath=os.path.abspath('my.blend'))"

I get:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
ImportError: DLL load failed while importing bpy: The specified module could not be found.

I’d be thankful for any help, ty!
