With the test, does it show the same error message box as it does if you
run your fsolve() example? If so, can you click on "details" (I think
upper right corner of the box) and see if it's related to some kind of
*.pyd file?

On Win, it's usually just installing Python (python-2.5.msi or
something), numpy  (numpy-1.0.1.win32-py2.5.exe) and scipy
(scipy-0.5.2.win32-py2.5.exe). If you plan to build things from source,
that's another story (haven't done that on Win).

Anyway, if it is the same problem that I had (loading a *.pyd lib) I
suspect that it's not a scipy-specific issue but rather a Windows
problem (but I'm not an expert here...). If you have access to another
Win box, I suggest that you try running you example there before doing
anything else.
