Is the Python that Wing is using matching the one that ck.pyd is 
compiled for?  You can check this with the following inside and outside 
of Wing:

import sys

You might also want to check that the sys.path includes the place where 
ck.pyd is located:


I'm not sure but it may also be that ck.pyd is failing to load a DLL 
that it uses.  But I would check the above first.

Please let us know if this does not help.
