It is supposed to install numpy :) The fact that it is not clear is not 
good, obviously. Suggestions to make it more obvious are welcomed.

You did not have the usual serie of screens for numpy installation 
(python version detection, etc...) ? If not, this means the installer 
does not work at all.

If working, you are not supposed to find the numpy-1.0.5-sse3.exe, the 
whole idea of the installer is to choose the right numpy installer, and 
run it. This is meant to simplify windows' users life, the ones who do 
not know nor care about what SSE or ATLAS is and whether their computer 
support it.

No executing and no error ? That's the worse thing which could happen, 
and the exact thing I was fearing (this and vista support).

thanks for testing this out,
