I installed 32-bit openslide and copied all the dll files from bin to
C:/windows/system32 path. If i try executing openslide-show-properties
inside bin it works fine , but not outside(gives lib-glib.dll is missing).
So i copied all the dll files and copied inside
F:\Python342\Scripts\openslide-python-1.0.1\examples\deepzoom  and brought
up the deepzoom server . If i try connecting to it frm a web browser with
http://localhost:5000 , i get server error.

>>> ================================ RESTART
 * Running on - - [09/Nov/2014 19:21:25] "GET / HTTP/1.1" 500 -

Am i using the server right way? my understanding is i should be able to
view the list of images in the current directory.
