Hi all,

I've followed the documentation for setuptools with regards to installing
and installing setuptools (if it's not instlaled, or upgrading it). I can't
however get any of
these features of setuptools to work correctly.

1. setuptools is not being installed when users install the application's
2. required dependencies arenot being installed either.

This is being done on Windows XP machine with Python-2.5.1

I do have ez_setup.py in the same directory as setup.py of the
project in question and have the following 2 lines at the top of

import ez_setup

In my setup.py I have:

      install_requires = [

However this is not being installed when the app's installer is run.

Also setuptools is not being installed either.

Am I missing something ? From what I've read this should _all_ work :)
