OK, I got it to install. But now, when I try to use checker.py I get:

Warning (from warnings module):
   File "C:\Python24\lib\site-packages\pychecker\checker.py", line 609
     m = imp.init_builtin(moduleName)
DeprecationWarning: the regex module is deprecated; please use the re module

That line 609 is in this function in checker.py:

def fixupBuiltinModules(needs_init=0):
     for moduleName in sys.builtin_module_names :
         if needs_init:
             _ = Module(moduleName, 0)
         module = _allModules.get(moduleName, None)
         if module is not None :
             try :
                 m = imp.init_builtin(moduleName)
             except ImportError :
             else :
                 extra_attrs = _BUILTIN_MODULE_ATTRS.get(moduleName, [])
                 module.attributes = [ '__dict__' ] + dir(m) + extra_attrs

 >>> import sys
 >>> sys.builtin_module_names
('__builtin__', '__main__', '_bisect', '_codecs', '_codecs_cn', 
'_codecs_hk', '_codecs_iso2022', '_codecs_jp', '_codecs_kr', 
'_codecs_tw', '_csv', '_heapq', '_hotshot', '_locale', '_multibytecodec',

'operator', 'parser', 'regex', 'rgbimg', 'sha', 'signal', 'strop',

What now?
