The output of:

python -c "import numpy; import sys; print 
sys.executable;numpy.show_config()" > python26.txt

and

python -c "import numpy; import sys; print sys.executable; 
numpy.show_config()" > python25.txt

are identical except for the first line:

diff python25.txt python26.txt
1c1
< C:\Python25\python.exe
---
 > C:\Python26\python.exe

I paste the python26.txt because the other one is the same except for 
the first line:

C:\Python26\python.exe
blas_info:
    libraries = ['blas']
    library_dirs = ['C:\\local\\lib\\yop\\nosse']
    language = f77

lapack_info:
    libraries = ['lapack']
    library_dirs = ['C:\\local\\lib\\yop\\nosse']
    language = f77

atlas_threads_info:
  NOT AVAILABLE

blas_opt_info:
    libraries = ['blas']
    library_dirs = ['C:\\local\\lib\\yop\\nosse']
    language = f77
    define_macros = [('NO_ATLAS_INFO', 1)]

atlas_blas_threads_info:
  NOT AVAILABLE

lapack_opt_info:
    libraries = ['lapack', 'blas']
    library_dirs = ['C:\\local\\lib\\yop\\nosse']
    language = f77
    define_macros = [('NO_ATLAS_INFO', 1)]

atlas_info:
  NOT AVAILABLE

lapack_mkl_info:
  NOT AVAILABLE

blas_mkl_info:
  NOT AVAILABLE

atlas_blas_info:
  NOT AVAILABLE

mkl_info:
  NOT AVAILABLE

Any hint?

Armando
