I'm trying to get myself set up at home so I can play around with coding stuff that might be relevant for Azimuth. I like Sage, but am running Windows, and am not crazy about running Sage via VMware.
So I decided to try to set up Python, NumPy, SciPy, etc directly under Windows.
When I try these kinds of things, I tend to make every possible mistake you could make. If we make any progress, it would be great if we could share code, so I thought I would summarize my experience so that maybe others can avoid making the same mistakes.
First, if you download Python 2.7, make sure you also download NumPy for Python 2.7 and SciPy for Python 2.7. It sounds obvious, but I tend to grab the first .exe I see. You'd think it would be backward compatible so downloading NumPy for Python 2.6 should work with Python 2.7, but apparently not. The versions have to all align.
