Hi Foad,

Are you trying to run ipython from *within* python or from the windows command prompt? ipython is a command that must be run from the windows command line, which starts up the ipython interactive python environment.

At the moment I'm on the 'take your python for a spin!' section but cannot start up ipython in the command prompt. I have installed 7-zip and have untar-ed the file.
