You're absolutely right. You cannot import a module like this into SecureCRT's built-in python environment.

Is there a way of having secure crt to call an external python installation instead of using the one built in?
If you're using a version of SecureCRT 8.0.1 and earlier, you can use an external python installation by renaming the python27.dll and python27.zip files (found in SecureCRT's program files location) to something like python27-do_not_use.dll and python27_do_not_use.zip.

However, as of SecureCRT version 8.0.2 and later, this is not possible because a change was made in SecureCRT to only load its own built-in python engine.

I've added a feature request on your behalf to allow SecureCRT to load/use an external python installation. Should this ever be possible in the future, we'll be sure to post here and let you know.
