Yes, i edited the init file and it unfortunately didn't work. As a workaround I now call my standard python interpreter in a subprocess whenever I want to use 3rd party packages and use the libreoffice interpreter to access the uno api. This seems to work, though I hope it won't drag down perfomance too much... Thx alot for trying to help. 2015-04-12 09:29:05 +0200 received badge ● Notable Question (source) 2015-04-11 11:24:56 +0200 commented answer How can I use python requests or other 3rd party packages in general? No, unfortunately it didn't work. I tried before to simply copy the inner request-folder into site-packages, but it failed. I also tried to install pip with get-pip.py, but when I ran that, python.exe crashed. 2015-04-10 12:16:12 +0200 received badge ● Popular Question (source) 2015-04-09 22:49:01 +0200 received badge ● Editor (source) 2015-04-09 22:47:19 +0200 asked a question How can I use python requests or other 3rd party packages in general? Hi everybody, I am using Windows 8.1 and LibreOffice 4.4.2.2. Scripting with the standard library of Python seems to work quite well, but I am having a hard time making the package "requests" work. Since I couldn't find pip or anything like that I downloaded the source directory into C:\Program Files (x86)\LibreOffice 4\program\ and executed within the source directory "C:\Program Files (x86)\LibreOffice 4\program\python.exe setup.py install", which seemed to work at the first glance, but when I try to run the following script:  import ctypes, requests def blabla(*args): yahoo_url="http://download.finance.yahoo.com/d/quotes.csv?s=" + "+ABX+ALV.DE" +"&f=l1t1d1xphgkjva2m3m4on&e=.csv" r = requests.get(yahoo_url) ctypes.windll.user32.MessageBoxW(0, r.text, "Yahoo says:", 1)  I get the following error message: Ein Scripting Framework Fehler trat während der Ausführung vom Python-Skript vnd.sun.star.script:PyOffice|coco.py\$blabla?language=Python&location=share auf.
