[Numpy-discussion] Trouble installing numpy

Thanks. The error message did not refer to the difference between 32-bit and 64-bit, only to the supposed absence of Python 2.7. And Idle says it's using Python 2.7.2 64 bit AMD64 on Win 32, which confused me. 
 
However, I see that the suggested web page contains the following four options, each of which apparently offers a NumPy-like Windows installation package for 64-bit windows machines:
  Bottleneck-0.5.0.win-amd64-py2.7.exe
  numpy-MKL-1.6.1.win-amd64-py2.7.exe  [*-see comment below]
  numpy-unoptimized-1.6.1.win-amd64-py2.7.exe
  numscons-012.0.win-amd64-py2.7.exe
[*-coment] This item is described as "not compatible with the official SciPy distributions."

Any comments on which ones I should try first?
