[Numpy-discussion] need advice on installing NumPy onto a Windows 7 with Python2.7 (32-bit)

It seems weird that it wouldn't work, as this is a pretty standard setup.
Here's a few ideas of things to check:
- Double-check it's really 32 bit Python (checking sys.maxint)
- Is there another Python installation that may cause some conflicts?
- Did you download the numpy superpack from the official website?
- Reboot

Unlikely to be helpful, but I can't think of something else right now :/
