Thanks. I got it to install, I had included the python.exe in the path. I'm
kind of ill, maybe that will serve as an excuse. <g>

Thanks for the assist.

Hmm, ok, another point to pay attention: do not use whitespace in the
set PATH=... command. E.g. this is bad:
set PATH=c:\windows;c:\program files\python
(if python.exe is in c:\program files\python\python.exe)
Use this:
set PATH=c:\windows;c:\progra~1\python
set PATH=c:\windows;"c:\program files\python"

This is known to work on my Win98 system.
If this does not work for you, provide a copy of your PATH command.
You could even try the Microsoft hotline.
