I run into an error when trying to use the matlab.engine module in python. It seems to be a library conflict. Not sure what I can do. I think I've narrowed it down to the python package h5py. When I include it, the code breaks with this error. Without h5py, it runs fine.

I have no solution to this question, but simply wanted to comment that I am here because of a similar issue. If I import matlab.engine before importing h5py in a script, I get a DLL-error for h5py.
