If your on windows, you can probably get rid of it through the Add/Remove Programs portion of the Conrol Panel.

Thanks. How do I switch? Do I just pull down 1.3 or better 1.2 (I use it.), and install it? How do I (actually my colleague) somehow remove 1.4? Is it as easy as going to IDLE's path browser and removing, under site-packages, numpy? (I'm not sure that's even possible. I don't see a right-click menu.)

Wayne,

The current release of Scipy doesn’t work perfectly well with Numpy 1.4.

On my systems (Mac OS 10.6, WinXP, and Ubuntu), I’m running Numpy 1.4 with the current Scipy on Python 2.6.4. I get the same error you describe below on the first attempt. For some reason unknown to me, it works on the second try.

Switching to Numpy 1.3 is the best solution to the error.

I wrote a program in Python 2.5 under Win7 and it runs fine using Numpy 1.2 , but not on a colleague's machine who has a slightly newer 2.5. We both use IDLE to execute the program. During import he gets this:

>>>
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\Documents and Settings\HP_Administrator.DavesDesktop\My Documents\Astro\Meteors\NC-FireballReport.py", line 38, in <module>
    from scipy import stats as stats # scoreatpercentile
  File "C:\Python25\lib\site-packages\scipy\stats\__init__.py", line 7, in <module>
    from stats import *
  File "C:\Python25\lib\site-packages\scipy\stats\stats.py", line 191, in <module>
    import scipy.special as special
  File "C:\Python25\lib\site-packages\scipy\special\__init__.py", line 22, in <module>
    from numpy.testing import NumpyTest
ImportError: cannot import name NumpyTest

Comments?
