Hm. That seems odd. It should just install itself. Have you tried running "ez_setup.py --allow-hosts=None -f. setuptools"?
I tried -f . but missed --allow-hosts=None. No time to try it right now, but I'll give it a go later. (Just for completeness - see below).
At the risk of going on about it, this is far messier than the traditional "python setup.py bdist_wininst" and run the installer...
That actually works now with setuptools-based packages, by the way.
It's quite safe to do that; setuptools now fully supports bdist_wininst.
That's brilliant news - I thought I saw some egg-info directories appear, but I hadn't understood the significance.
Actually, I guess I should qualify that a bit -- it's only *fully* supported if the package has no dependencies, in that bdist_wininst has no provision for installing dependencies.
