Hi All,

What's the distutils api call that I need to make to install
an .egg.

At the moment I'm using easy_install and the command line
but under vista it requires escalated privilages.

There must be a "batteries-included" way within python
either in setuptools or distutils to install an .EGG
from pypi? That is without telling the users that they
must download either easy_install or pip before they
can do the .egg install.

Thanks in advance
