Thanks for the info Miguel.

I can't find any trace of scripting within PCBNEW in this build. Is
there something that would hint to me that it is actually a scripting

I don't see anything that will let me have a scripting window inside
the PCBNEW frame. I've tried moving the python.py _python.pyd and
libpcbnew.dll.a files outside of the bin directory, but with no
change. I have been simply running python from the console, but it
sounds like that's not right if I want to interact with PCBNEW

The console mode appears to work fine for working on files and stuff
using the LoadBoard().

Thanks for your continued work on scripting! :-)

Best Regards, Brian.
