I've already installed pyreadline 1.3.

When I run the ipython installer

raceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 74, in ?
  File "<string>", line 16, in install
  File "C:\Python23\Lib\site-packages\IPython\__init__.py", line 60, in ?
  File "C:\Python23\Lib\site-packages\IPython\genutils.py", line 87, in ?
    import IPython.rlineimpl as readline
  File "C:\Python23\Lib\site-packages\IPython\rlineimpl.py", line 36, in ?
    from readline import *
  File "C:\Python23\Lib\site-packages\readline.py", line 9, in ?
    from pyreadline.init_rl import *
  File "C:\Python23\Lib\site-packages\pyreadline\init_rl.py", line 3, in ?
    rl = Readline()
NameError: name 'Readline' is not defined
*** run_installscript: internal error 0xFFFFFFFF ***

is displayed.

Does anyone else have this problem on Windows?
