Hi Fernando,

I tried to install the current CVS version on WinXP Pro and failed :-(

I'm attaching my internal configuration log, which contains the 
traceback I've received:

2004-06-09 07:55:06

o Install IPython-0.6.1.cvs
 - Follow the instructions in "Upgrading from a previous version" and
   delete the directory C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\Viktor 

o Installation failed w/ the following traceback:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "D:\Python23\Scripts\ipython_win_post_install.py", line 126, in ?
  File "D:\Python23\Scripts\ipython_win_post_install.py", line 86, in run
  File "D:\Python23\lib\shutil.py", line 100, in copytree
    names = os.listdir(src)
WindowsError: [Errno 3] Das System kann den angegebenen Pfad nicht 
finden: 'doc/*.*'
*** run_installscript: internal error 0xFFFFFFFF ***

Kind regards,
