Since standard Python binaries do not work with Maya 2013 and newer on Windows (because it uses VS2010 and up compiler, whereas standard Python 2.6 and 2.7 use VS2008 compiler), some community members have done the work to compile needed binaries.
I didn’t do any of this work myself, I am just hosting it here. I also haven’t tested these, as at the time of this writing I don’t have a Windows machine available.
Information about compiler versions can be found at around-the-corner.typepad.com. The gist is:
- Maya 2012 and earlier use whatever compiler Python uses.
- Maya 2013 and 2014 use Python 2.6 compiled with VS2010. The same binaries should be compatible in Maya 2013 and 2014.
- Maya 2015 uses Python 2.7 compiled with VS2012 Update 4.
- Not sure about Maya 2016, will update when I know!
All available binaries on this page are in http://www.robg3d.com/maya_win_bin. They are organized alphabetically below by Maya version.
