Doing nothing is quick, even on windows :)

I think I got the problem. Now, I got it working on my two vmware
windows at hand. Could you try this:
The problem was that I thought I did set the install directory to a
windows temp directory, but I actually only set up its default value,
and as such the actual numpy installer was put in C:\ (which is a really
crappy default ...). Because C:\ is not in the PATH, it does not work.
I set up the directory correctly, and there should be a message if the
execution of the actual numpy installer fails (there is also more
details in the installation log). I still do not understand why it
worked on one of my windows and not the other, though.

Well, I happend to have the same thing: my university's laptop windows
is in Japanese, and it works on this one too.
