> Anybody here that had the same problem and solved it?

Did you install the 32-bit or the 64-bit installer?

If the 64-bit installer, did you also install 32-bit or 64-bit
installers for iPython, PIL, and easy_install?

If you try to use 32-bit extensions or installers to locate a 64-bit
Python, that will fail: even if installation would succeed, you still
couldn't use the resulting installations, since you just can't mix
the two architectures in a single process.
