Python-2.6.1 msi will only install for all users. "Install just for me" is
not selectable.

Your binary would not install against the 32-bit python-2.6.1. Thats good, I
forgot to check which python installer it gave me by default. I removed the
32 bit python and installed the 64 bit version. In the past I have always
had to run python module installer exe's with administrator privileges,
thats what I did this time with your numpy installer. I got the same results
as Nathan. However, I have the following packages installed:

VC++ 2005 redistributable (32 and 64 bit)
VC++ 2008 express edition sp1
VC++ 2008 redistributable x86
MVS 2008 remote debugger light (x74)
MS windows sdk for VS 2008 headers and libraries
MS windows sdk for VS 2008 SP1 express tools for .Net
MS windows sdk for VS 2008 SP1 express tools for win32

Have you considered distributing the windows installer as an msi? I dont
think you need to run those installers with admin privs on Vista.
