Unfortunately I am a bit busy at the moment, and don't know if I will be able to get back into MMTK in time to help you.  I don't know if python was using distutils (the setup.py convention) back when I was building MMTK with VC++.  Anyways it was a while ago and I would have to dig around for it.  What I remember doing was just adding library and include directories with the VC++ gui.  

Have you tried posting to the mmtk list yet with your questions?
I've cc'd the list so perhaps someone there would be more helpful.


PS.  I've toyed around with the idea of setting up a business
giving commercial support to open source python packages like mmtk and pymol.  As a trial balloon, would anyone here be interested in something like that?  If it went well, it might evolve into more of an Openchem like package like I was working on a few years ago. http://www.openchem.org/oc.html  
Now that I'm more of a software engineer than a chemist it might work out better than that did.

Hi John,

I am Dr Konstantinos Makrodimitris.
I was trying to install MMTK in WINDOWS 2000
but I can't install ScientificPython 2.0 .
I noticed your answer in MMTK archives mail list
<<...download http://puma.dkrz.de/puma/download/netcdf/netcdf-3.4.zip
extract netcdf.h to C:\Python22\Lib\site-packages\MMTK-2.2\Include\MMTK
run C:\Python22\Lib\site-packages\MMTK-2.2>setup.py build --compiler=mingw32
run C:\Python22\Lib\site-packages\MMTK-2.2>setup.py install>>
FROM John Michelsen
and I'd like to request for your help.

I downloaded as a tar file: ScientificPython-2.4.1.tar.gz .
and put it 'C:\Python22\Lib\site-packages\Scientific241'.
Do I have
 to create the Include(put inside netcdf.h),  Lib(put inside netcdf.lib), Scientific directories and
to change of course the settings of setup.py from "for netcdf_prefix in
['/usr/local', '/usr']
 for netcdf_prefix in
and run the setup.py in C:\Python22\Lib\site-packages\Scientific241(in the
same directory I must put Scientific_netcdf.c)?
When I am trying eg the "setup.py build" in command prompt(MSDOS)
 I take:"  running build_py
  error: package directory 'Functions' does not exist' Also the sam for
Geometry, Statistics etc

Could you please give me your guide where to put files in which directories
in order to install ScientificPython 2.0 and
also if it is possible the way that I have to act for MMTK installation.

My Best,
