Hi Alex,

Could you please detail the steps you took to get this setup.py file to work? There is no other in this project.

Thank you,

That setup.py worked fine here, so I'm guessing this is not the actual setup.py you're running. What is the exact value of the "name" argument in your real setup.py?

BTW, source encoding is utf-8 by default on Python 3 so the "# coding=utf8" is unnecessary.
