Can you do the following:

start up regular IPython:

then do

ip = get_ipython()
print ip.ipython_dir

That will  show you where the ipython directory is.  We have not run
IPython 0.11 on Windows 7 yet, so maybe our ipython directory stuff is

I don't currently have a Windows 7 install, but we will need to do
that soon for our work with Enthought.
