Thank you very much! It resolved the problem. I have successfully installed the 
numpy for Python 2.7

Hi! I think you should download the 2.7 pack 
( http://sourceforge.net/projects/numpy/files/NumPy/1.5.1/numpy-1.5.1-win32-superpack-python2.7.exe/download
 ) and it might detect your python 2.7 instead.
