Problem Installing Python on Windows Vista

P: 4
I am trying to Install Python 2.5.1

I am running Windows Vista Home Premium. I have an

AMD Turion(tm) 64 X2 Mobile Technology TL-60 2.00 GHz
I have tried all of the downloads for all the processors.
As soon as I run any of the downloads I instantly get an error message:

"This installation package is not supported by this processor type. Contact your product vendor."

Any help would be appreciated.

I only got one hit on this issue. It doesn't sound like it's a fit for you, but check out bugs.python.org/issue1563185.

I've posted in the Windows Forum to see if that issue applies to your OS or not. That thread is here.

Thank you for your help.

I have looked to download a 32 bit installer and cannot find it.
is this a download for windows, or another Python download.

Thanks again

I'd try the "Python-2.5 msi" on this page.

Ihave tried all of the following downloads:

python-2.5.1.amd64
puthon-2.5.amd64
python-2.5.ia64

I get the same error message with them all.

From what I have read, you need to forget about any 64 bit installers. Try the one that does not carry an extension of that nature.

I tried the Python 2.5.msi

I get error message:

"This installation package could not be opened. Contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer package."

Thanks

Have you tried the newest version of Python, 3.0a?

Very strange. I'll dig around a bit to see if anything else pops up.

I guess that if you are very determined and have a compiler installed you could be the first one to have a version that runs on that machine.
