[SciPy-user] python windows set up

Hi Karl,
sorry for advertising my own stuff....
but maybe you wouldn't mind trying this on windows:
if you get the file:
from http://code.google.com/p/priithon/downloads/list

you would actually not even have to download/install Python first.
Just extract this above zip file into the C directory, and it creates
a new directory:
There start: priithon_script.bat and see what happens
(or priithon_script_oldDiv.bat, if you prefer 3/2 to be 1 rather than 1.5)
It should start a graphical python shell based on wxPython - PyShell -
so no IDLE, or IPython, but I have some tab-completion.

This is my packages, that I have put together to target image
processing of microscopy data.
In case you get interested, you could get more help on the Priithon
mailing-list (no traffic yet ;-)

She's an excellent scientist but has a low tolerance for complicated software installations and it seems like I'm currently losing the battle re. her installing scipy/numpy. I'm a linux type (though I understand the importance of being cross platform I rarely leave my linux womb, e.g. I currently do most work in ubuntu under parallels on a mac so don't even look much at OS X issues) so I'm not much use re. helping her with her installation issues. I know this type of question has been asked endlessly but I thought I'd try to get the latest suggestions on whether there was anywhere I could point her. She's tried to install the Enthought distribution (at the moment I forget what the problem she had with that was); is that still the best suggestion ? Do people recommend PythonXY in this type of situation (seems like a bit of baggage if you only need numpy/scipy) ? Anyway, sorry again for the spam and thanks for any suggestions.
