I'd be most grateful if anyone could help with this problem.

Subject: [SciPy-user] Installing Ipython

I'm getting a strange error when trying to install IPython on my wife's laptop (under Win98SE). Everything else (Python 2.3, IDLE, ctypes, readline, scipy, numpy, matplotlib etc) is installed on the laptop and works fine. But when I install Ipython, when it's running the post install script, I get the following error:
Traceback (most recent call last):
 File "<string>", line 74, in ?
 File "<string>", line 22, in install
OSError: no such folder (CSIDL_COMMON_PROGRAMS)
*** run_installscript: internal error 0xFFFFFFF ***
Does anyone know how to rectify this?
Thanks very much and thanks also to those who have helped me with all my questions over the last few weeks. I now have a beautiful secant method root finding happily!
