Built windows installers and Cygwin

A SPE user reported this on the SPE users forum
(http://developer.berlios.de/forum/me...msg_id=21944):
My setup is as follows:
SPE-0.7.5
Python 2.4 (from the Cygwin packages)

Installer does not continue. "No Python installation found in the registry".

Are there other workarounds for this issue?


The SPE installer is a standard Python built installer made with:
python setup.py bdist_wininst

Is there any way for these kind of installers to be used with cygwin.
The installer creates also shortcuts in the start menu, which is only
possible with built installers without requiring win32 extensions.

No. The bdist_wininst packages link against Microsoft's C library;
the cygwin Python against Cygwin's.

If there is no native code in the package, it would be possible to
*use* them - installing them still won't work. To use them, unzip
them, and spread the files as you see fit.
