I promise this to be the last mail :-)
Here is my internal configuration log for the de-installation attempt:
o De-Install IPython-0.6.1.cvs
- A similar traceback than above occured. However this time it couldn't be
- De-installation succeeded partially, i.e. it removed the
directory D:\Python23\Lib\site-packages\IPython\ but did not remove

Well, it looks like it works for Windows somewhat better than before, since at
least there is some install/deinstall magic going on, albeit imperfect.
Unfortunately since I can't run any of this code, unless somebody sends me a
tested patch which fixes the remaining glitches under Windows, it won't
improve much. The problematic code seems to be:
# File and directory names
ip_dir = program_files_dir + '\\IPython'
ip_prog_dir = programs_dir + '\\IPython'
doc_dir = ip_dir+'\\doc'
ip_filename = ip_dir+'\\IPython_shell.py'
pycon_icon = doc_dir+'\\pycon.ico'
if not os.path.isdir(ip_dir):
# Copy startup script and documentation
But without knowing exactly why that doc_dir path doesn't exist it will be
hard to fix. Since this code uses Win32 calls, I can't even test it anywhere,
But many thanks for your reports.
