[SciPy-user] Installing under Windows - what am I doing wrong?

Hi All,

After successfully installing SciPi under Linux I decided to install under
Windows as I am investigating using SciPi for some cross platform software
that we are developing. The installation seems to have worked but when I
tried running some tests I get an error.

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "J:\temp\PLATLIB\scipy\tests\test_basic.py", line 6, in ?
    import scipy_base.limits as limits
ImportError: No module named scipy_base.limits

Now I confess to being a total Python Newbie but it seems to me that I need
a module named scipy_base but I cannot find anything like this.
Any suggestions as to what I am doing wrong?

I am running Python 2.2 under windows 2000.
I installed Scipy using SciPy-0.2.1_253.3691.win32-py2.2.exe

I've notice under the Linux install that there is a whole directory called
scipy_base but this seems to be missing in my windows install.
