Hi, I'm a student learning nodebox in class.
While following this tutorial (,
a messege poped out and none of my node worked.

"Cannot create PyString with non-byte balue"

I attached my screenshot below.
Is there any way I can solve this?

    Hi B,

    Sorry for the delay. Your post somehow wound up in our spam folder.

    I see nothing wrong with the screenshot you attached. If you are still there, could you please reply to this note and attach a zipped version of your NodeBox file?

    Also please let me know what version of NodeBox you are using.

    Hi John,

    I asked my professor about it and he told me to re-install it, which I
    followed and eventually it just worked.
    I think it had some problem while installing it.

    Thank you for reply!
