I tried to install the current CVS version on WinXP Pro and failed :-(
I'm attaching my internal configuration log, which contains the
traceback I've received:
o Install IPython-0.6.1.cvs
- Follow the instructions in "Upgrading from a previous version" and
delete the directory C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\Viktor
o Installation failed w/ the following traceback:
Traceback (most recent call last):
