stuck = placed.

I'm pretty sure I used an msi file. I've brought this topic up in 3 
forums where I would have thought people knew the answer. Yours  is the 
first answer. I would have guessed that  anyone dealing libraries would 
have known the answer. Nor have I found anything in two Python books 
I've used. I think I'll look at them again. Google didn't even show 
anything.

Thanks for the response. I'll try to clear manually the locations we've 
mentioned.
