appropriate python version

P: n/a
Sorry if this is a stupid q,
I am trying to figure out the appropriate version of Python(2.4 or
2.5) for an XP 64 system running on an Intel Core2 Quad. Python.org
has a to a 64bit build, but it specifies Itanium as the target. Should
I just be using the regular build?
I was also thinking of getting the Enthought edition (http://
code.enthought.com/enthon/) - would their binary work with the setup,
and what would be the downside of using it over the special 64bit
build?

thanks,
max.

Itanium is a different processor and architecture. It simply won't run
on your Core2 Quad. You need an x86-64bit build.

Seeing as the special 64bit build appears to be for itanium (from what
you say here), I'd say the question is moot!

Thanks. I am guessing the 32bit build should work anyways, same as
other 32 progs on XP 64?

The right build should be the "amd64" one.
