Python on Vista installation issues

P: n/a
I'm having errors installing Python extensions on Vista. I'm running
Python 2.5, and every extension install produces "cannot create"
errors. For instance, win32all 210 says:

Could Not Create: pywin32-py2.5
Could Not Set Key Value: Python 2.5 pywin32-210
Could Not Set Key Value: (followed by the uninstaller command)

Other extensions produce similar errors. I haven't thoroughly tested
this system yet, so I don't know if any of this is really causing a
problem. Can anyone tell me how to fix or avoid this problem?

Vista is a 64 bit OS and there is no port of pywin32 for either Vista
or 64-bit XP

Vista exists in BOTH 32 bit and 64 bit versions.

Okay, I've figured it out. It's easy (but stupid)... right click the
extension installer program, and choose Run as Administrator.

Just posting this so the next Google search for an answer might actually
find one.
