Such installers have a GUI interface; one normally runs them by double-
clicking on the filename or icon in Windows Explorer. If you run it
from the command line in a Command Prompt window [I guess that's what
you mean by "console"], I'd expect it to pop up a GUI window and run
OK (with nothing printed on the console) -- at least that's what it
did for me, with Windows XP SP2 and Windows 2000 SP4.  The W2k box
doesn't have Python 2.5; SciPy installation does get as far as
detecting Python 2.5 isn't there.

Perhaps your download was corrupt; consider trying it again.

HTH,
John
