[Distutils] windows setuptools.exe

I just tried to download and run the python2.5 0.6c11 setuptools and I get a
message that there is no record of python in the registry and the install
cannot proceed. Annoyingly there are two empty text boxes that look like one
might be able to type a path in but they are disabled.

 This is on Windows 7 x64, I'm wondering if the binary is looking into the
32 bit registry? The
standard HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Python\PythonCore\2.5 entries are all
there (in the 64 bit registry)

Any ideas how to proceed?
