Inline plots don't work with VS 2012 -- show() does nothing

May 21, 2013 at 11:25 AM
I have VS2012 Ultimate and installed PTVS 2.0 alpha (also tried with PTVS 1.5 with same result), CPython 3.3, and the SciPy stack. I have set the interpreter for interactive windows to IPython, and IPython does work. However, after typing something like

In [1]: plot(rand(100))
Out[1]: [<matplotlib.lines.Line2D at 0x465f930>]
In [2]: show()

I simply get no reaction - no inline plot shows up. When using the "IPython w/o PyLab" interpreter, I get separate windows with plots, but I would like to have inline plots. I do get this message when starting an interactive window:

Welcome to pylab, a matplotlib-based Python environment [backend: module://IPython.zmq.pylab.backend_inline].
For more information, type 'help(pylab)'.

pyzmq is installed. Does anyone have any ideas?
