System: WinNT workstation, would like to install 1.1.2 into ZOPE
(hope png problems vanish) to enhance our MetaPublisher w thumbnails.
Already installed 1.1.1 (install instructions for zope-products also
using PIL
were hard to understand for a newbie, now i know just copy files).
PIL1.1.2 doesn't come right out of the box (prebuilt),
seems i need to generate something like "_imaging.pyd",
which i can't (no Visual Studio, no C compiler).
Remedies to that would be most welcome. :-)
