if you install the x86-64 version of python, the windows installer "setuptools-0.6c11.win32-py2.6.exe" does not find any Python installation. I had to export the registry key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Python", change it to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Python" and import it afterwards to be able to install the software. The installer should be changed to avoid trouble for other people.
This is a *Python* installer issue; Please see:
Until the issue in Python itself is fixed, the only things I can do are document the problem and/or stop distributing an .exe installer.
