Maybe your comment is useful: there was a post in the biggles mailing list
today, saying the installer requires python 2.1, not 2.2. maybe the installer
works, if I manipulate the registry key concerning the python  version.  But
that is a dirty hack. I'd really be interested in a new version, but biggles is
updatetd quite seldom, although biggles makes the nicest plots I've seen among
the plotting packages for python...

So I'll have to build biggles from scratch...

Greetings, Uwe.
