How to installo????

P: n/a
Just got a new Vista system and puter....

Installed a newer version of Python, up from 2.2 or so...

Tried to install Win extensions, but have forgotten how it's done.
Clicking on setup in the Win Extsions package flashes a window by,
but cannot read it. and I don't see a way to load the setup into
Python without Win Extensions.

Any suggestions?

Thank you

I would recommend using the command line. Open that up and then type
something like this:

python pathToWinExt\setup.py

That should run it and when it's done, your command window should stay
open. Hopefully it will tell you what happened.

Since I don't have Vista and don't know if it will recognize the name
"python", you may need to specify a path to it too.

Good luck!

Thanks, Mike. I'd forgotten about the command line technique, having
used point & click in XP. I found it was actually:
setup.py install

However, I'm getting the message that setup cannot find an installed
platform SDK, '

I have VB6 installed, so that should have done it. It's like the
script cannot locate the SDK, any ideas??
