I'm running a python script importing dataextract (from tableau api) csv,os, and datetime when I run it I'm getting this error and I don't know where to start looking. The only line of code I am running is

import dataextract as tde

And I installed this library following tableau's tutorial http://www.tableausoftware.com/learn/tutorials/on-demand/extract-api-introduction?signin=f850b055b106d24b93b365faad64838f

Traceback (most recent call last):

After spending time on trying this I figured out that the Tableau Extract Library only works on computers were Tableau is installed
