The windows Superpack installation does not work properly on windows 7. It does not create a SimpleCV program group or a link to access the program documentation, there is little or no coherent help for resolving this issue available that I can find, just a range of people having problems.

In the section "The Shell and The Filesystem" the location of the code examples has changed and the paths are incorrect. "For example, you can download the images from this book from the SimpleCV website at http://www.simplecv.org/learn/. If the images used in this book are then stored in a folder named SimpleCV located in the home directory, then the paths to the example images used in this chapter would be: SimpleCVC:\Users\your_username\SimpleCV\Chapter 2 on Windows SimpleCV/home/your_username/SimpleCV/Chapter\ 2 on Linux SimpleCV /Users/your_username/SimpleCV/Chapter\ 2 on Mac." should be: "For example, you can download the images from this book from the SimpleCV website at http://simplecv.org/book If the images used in this book are then stored in a folder named SimpleCV located in the home directory, then the paths to the example images used in this chapter would be: C:\Users\your_username\SimpleCV\Chapter 2 on Windows /home/your_username/SimpleCV/Chapter\ 2 on Linux /Users/your_username/SimpleCV/Chapter\ 2 on Mac."

Code raises a "video system not initialized" error when window is closed. This is an error that has been around for over a year, as can be seen from the SimpleCV forums: http://help.simplecv.org/question/1505/error-with-example-from-page-25/ No solution has been posted. Here is the code from the book: -- from SimpleCV import Display, Image import time display = Display() Image("logo").save(display) print "I launched a window" #this while loop will keep looping until the window is closed while not display.isDone(): time.sleep(0.1) print "You closed the window" --

Code as presented does *not* save images stored in the ImageSet() because it is given no destination to save *to*. e.g. camImages.save(verbose=True) should be: camImages.save(destination="<name-of-desired-folder-or-gif-file>", verbose=True)

Code listing and last paragraph (referring to (1) colorDistance() function)

Code listing and last paragraph (referring to (1) colorDistance() function), the RGB pixel values are not the same, the text implies they should be.

Import statement should include 'Color', i.e. 'from SimpleCV import Image, Color' or line 6 'circles[0].draw(color=Color.RED, width=4)' will fail.

np.array of coin diameters vs. values is incorrect. # The value of the coins in order of their size # http://www.usmint.gov/about_the_mint/?action=coin_specifications coin_diameter_values = np.array([ [ 19.05, 0.10], [ 21.21, 0.01], [ 17.91, 0.05], [ 24.26, 0.25]]); Should read: coin_diameter_values = np.array([ [ 19.05, 0.01], [ 21.21, 0.05], [ 17.91, 0.10], [ 24.26, 0.25]]);
