[IPython-User] IPython and ipcluster on Windows 7

I have been using the parallel extensions functionality in the 
development version of IPython on Windows XP for a number of 
months now. Recently, I upgraded to 64-bit Windows 7 and installed
64-bit Python 2.7. I used the incredibly useful content at http://
www.lfd.uci.edu/~gohlke/pythonlibs/ to get all of the 64-bit 
Windows packages for 2.7. With respect to IPython, I followed the
instructions at 
as before to use Ipython 0.11.

When I run 

      ipluster create -p mycluster

I get a console window that pops up and closes too quickly to see 
what the content is. In the past, this command would display
informational messages from IPClusterApp, as seen at

I was hoping to find a log file in my .ipython directory, which on 
XP was in something like 
C:\Documents and Settings\<UserName>\.ipython, 
but now on Windows 7 I cannot find this directory.

So, my first question is, does anyone know where the .ipython 
directory gets created on Windows 7? Also, if you happen to be using
64-bit Python 2.7 on Windows 7, and are using the parallel extensions
in IPython, any setup hints you have would be appreciated!
