setting up scipy in windows

P: n/a
Hi All,
has anyone out there recently set up scipy on Windows? Cause I am
trying to do so know and I am not having much luck. I have ActiveState
and Plone. When I try to import scipy in ActiveState it says
import scipy Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<interactive input>", line 1, in ?
ImportError: No module named scipy from scipy import *

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<interactive input>", line 1, in ?
ImportError: No module named scipy
When I try to the same in Plone it crashes. I have the latest self
install executable from SCIPY. I didn't compile the source.
Scipy looks like just the thing I want, if anyone has got it running on
a Windows box I would like to hear how you did it. Thanks all have a
great day.

The installer was made for the official python.org distribution. The
paths for the ActiveState and Plone distributions are probably
different. Move the files to the appropriate places.

With STANDARD Python 2.3 it installs from the Python 2.3 win 32 installers
and runs.

The only problem I had was that "Numeric" needs to be installed before
"Scipy" or Scipy will chrash.

Thanks to both you guys. I got scipy up and running yesterday. Here are
the steps I went through:
1. I un-installed some non-official pythons. (Plone and ActiveState)
2. I loaded STANDARD Python 2.3.5
3. I loaded Python for Windows extensions.
4. I Loaded Numeric
5. Loaded SCIPY
6. Tested it by typing in pythonwin
from scipy import *
Then played around with some of the methods. Pretty cool stuff. Thanks
all!
