Well, that's where it was getting stuck before, and all my attempts to fix 
things failed.  You may try to use the hacked ipython_win_post_install.py I 
posted.  That one has changes to the paths so that it runs to completion, 
avoiding the traceback above.  However, though MY script runs correctly 
(verified by an internally generated logfile which records its end), the 
Windows binary GUI installer dies spectacularly.

If you can debug that problem, then my hacked ipython_win_post_install.py 
could become the official one.

Cheers,
