To All, 

I am still not sure as to why this is not working.  I believe it could
be my windows environment variables.  However, I have set these
variables based on the following webpage:


The error that I obtain is the following:

C:\python25\python C:\python25\scripts\f2py.py -c --fcomplier=gnu95
--compiler=mingw32 -m foo foo.f90

running build
running scons
No module named msvccompiler in numpy.distutils; trying from distutils
error: Python was built with Visual Studio 2003;
extensions must be built with a compiler than can generate compatible
Visual Studio 2003 was not found on this system. If you have Cygwin
you can try compiling with MingW32, by passing "-c mingw32" to setup.py.

Why that I need to have Visual Studio 2003 is beyond me.  Does anyone
have any suggestions.
