[Numpy-discussion] need advice on installing NumPy onto a Windows 7 with Python2.7 (32-bit)

I am trying to install NumPy (using numpy-1.6.1-win32-superpack-python2.7)
on a Windows 7 machine that has 32-bit Python 2.7 installed on it using the
latest installer (python-2.7.2.msi). Python is installed into the default
location, C:\Python27, and as far as I can tell the registry knows about it
-- or at least the windows uninstaller in the control panel does...
The installation fails because the NumPy installer cannot find the Python
installation. I am then prompted with a screen that should allow me to
type in the location of my python installation, but the text-boxes where I
should type this do not allow input so I'm kind of stuck.
I did look into trying to build from source, but I don't have a C compiler
on this system so setup.py died a horrible death. I'd prefer to avoid
having to install Visual C++ Express on this system.
Does anyone have any suggestions that might be helpful?
