I've been trying to install NumPy to run with Eclipse on Windows Vista.
After installing (I thought) NumPy I was seeing:


ImportError: Error importing numpy: you should not try to import numpy from

        its source directory; please exit the numpy source tree, and

        your python intepreter from there.


I next tried to follow the instructions from the scipy.org website and
downloaded and ran:




This started up but I immediately saw the following dialog:



Cannot install


Python version 2.7 required, which was not found in the registry.





The next dialog prompted for a Python installation to use but the list box
was empty and it would not allow me to enter a path.


Is it absolutely necessary to build NumPy myself or is there a working
installation out there? I know I'm doing something wrong but I don't know
what it is. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated :).
