[Numpy-discussion] Why this Difference in Importing NumPy 1.2 vs 1.4?

Yes, that is very likely  the solution. It's clear that the module is in 
the list. I say likely, since I've never done it before and there always 
seems to be something that gets overlooked in what seems to be something 
so simple. :-)

However, my colleague is on XP. Ah, same idea there.

I find it odd that no one seems to address the removal of modules from 
site-packages from Windows.
Thanks.

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.)
