[Matrix-SIG] Re: error in installing Numerical on windows

I made an error in putting together the Windows installer. It works with
Python 1.5.2 but not 1.5.1. You can grab the "release 9" file for Numerical
Python or you can upgrade to 1.5.2 or you can wait for the next Numerical.
I'm sure there is some equivalent where you edit the registry but if I
understood that properly I wouldn't have made the mistake in the first

The next release of Numerical will not need to fiddle with the registry to
get the path right, thus ridding of this problem forever. I hope to get it
out in the next week or so.
