Trying to translate the latter to Windows ...
I see that my original IPython installation created
a shortcut with target
I think you are saying that changing this to
C:\Python24\python.exe "C:\Program Files\IPython\IPython_shell.py"
should work as long as I add an %PYTHONPATH environment
variable that points to "C:\Program Files\IPython".
Is that about right?
