I have downloaded setuptools-0.6c11.win32-py2.5.exe and tried to install it on Windows 7 (64 bit). I have an existing Python installation. The setuptool recognizes the path, however, puts a quote around the path. The problem is that it also carries the quotes around the Python path in the installation directory and makes a path like:
This is an invalid path and in the next step the installer complains that cannot install the files in the provided path. The setuptool also does not allow editing this path. Any help is appreciated, asap.
This sounds like a problem with the distutils installer for Windows. Have you tried installing any other Python .exe's from PyPI, and do they have the same problem?
