Hi Guys

I am having trouble installing the python packages at

Everytime I unzip the file and install the .mpkg file, I get the 
following error:
"The InstallationCheck tool is either not exectutable or not readable."

1) I chmod'ed +x the "InstallationCheck" script in the Resouces folder. 
  Didn't help

2) I did a google search and found someone else having the same 
problem, but they said that it was fixed if they used StuffIt Expander 
to unzip the file and not 'unzip'. I used both and I am having the same 
problems in both cases.

3) I looked at what the file 'InstallationCheck' contained in the pkg 
and it was just this:

exit 112

So I thought I would just delete it and that should be ok. Nope, same 

4) I contacted Bob Ippolito and he was kind enought to provide some 
suggestions but could not help much because he could not reproduce the 
problems on any of his macs.

So, if anyone else is having the same problems and has managed to fix 
it, I would really appreciate any advice !

Thanks in advance !
