#1130: Incorrect instructions for windows installer (arch option)
 Reporter:  albertogomcas  |       Owner:  pv   
     Type:  defect         |      Status:  new  
 Priority:  normal         |   Milestone:  0.8.0
Component:  Documentation  |     Version:  0.7.0
 Keywords:                 |  
 On some windows systems (so far the common factor appears to be chinese
 language windows XP, but could not tell for sure) both scipy and numpy
 .exe installers fail to recognise the machine architecture.

 There is the option to provide it manually through the command line, but
 the information in the release notes (
 http://docs.scipy.org/doc/numpy/release.html ):

 numpy-1.3.0-superpack-win32.exe /arch=nosse

 appears to be incorrect, it only works if the option (nosse, sse2, sse3)
 is provided after a space and without the "=" symbol:

 numpy-1.3.0-superpack-win32.exe /arch nosse

 Sorry if I mixed scipy and numpy in a single bug report.
