hello all...

...i just wanted to share a trial and tribulation...

...i just loaded Python on my windows Vista machine with a fair bit of
difficulty...

...the Python installers evidently feature msi code that isn't friendly with
Installer 4.0 (which comes with Vista)...despite the fact that i have
installed numerous applications, i was unable to install Python...

...i found this tip to install from the command prompt, but no dice...

http://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-list/2006-June/389015.html

...so...on a whim i logged in as the local admin acct, and it installed just
fine using the command line tool...

...evidently, just having the local rights on the machine (which my domain
acct had) wasn't enough for some reason...

...so, if you are one of the few stupid souls testing Vista (like me),
there's your solution for installing Python...  ;o)

thx...
...dave p
