Seems that the ssl module is not compiled with C4D Python under Windows.
Is there a technical or legal reason for this?
I keep getting this under Windows 7 x64:
**ImportError: ** No module named _ssl
A direct import produces the same. On OS X, everything seems to work fine. Maybe there is a way around it that some of you may know of? I have come up with a few hacks but it requires the user to jump
over some hurdles that I really want to avoid.

On Windows, C4D Python is not shipped with a native SSL support due to some internal dependencies.
The SSL module has a dependency to OpenSSL which is part of OS X but not Windows. You can compile the missing libs (_ssl.pyd)
from Python manually with VS2010 (R14) or VS2005 (R13) and add the file to a sub-folder of your plugin.
The sub-folder must be added to the search path list so Python can find it on an import.

Thanks for the reply Yannick!
I'm going to try compiling the module.

I also ran into this earlier. It seems to be important that the exact same version of python (6.6.4) and visual studio (2005 for r12/r13 and 2010 for r14) are used. I started doing an attempt a while ago, but always got stuck at some point. If you succeed in getting this to run, it would be great if you could share it!
Just out of curiosity: What are you using it for? I was trying to use https to connect to a web service.

I will definitely share the results if successful.
So far all attempts have failed.

keeping my fingers crossed. Will let you know in case we move forward here. Still, it would be really great if MAXON could include this by default...
