Mingw is used to compile numpy and scipy AFAIK.

> PS. Perhaps there is another way to do it... compiling for me is just a means to an end. We are users of Numpy not developers of Numpy. What I want most of all to just be able to pick up a .egg file for Numpy & Scipy pre-built for Win32 by somebody else. Even better if it were an official or quasi-official distribution of the product. Does anybody know if I can just download and use Numpy + Scipy in pre-compiled in egg form?

Why is exe files a problem ?
