I have the Phyton installation in Eclipse  referenced in the following line.  My Current environment is Windows 7 64bit.

C:\Python27\python.exe 2.7.1 (r271:86832, Nov 27 2010, 17:19:03) [MSC v.1500 64 bit (AMD64)]

I neet to install matplotlib but when I execute the installation program (matplotlib-1.0.0 win.amd 64py2.6.exe) the following message is displayed

"Phython version 2.6 required which was not found in the registry.

Does anyone knows how to resolve the above mentioned problem?

    Python version 2.6 is different from 2.7 you have
    Install v2.6 aside and it will work.

    Thank for your response.   I understand that 2.7 is the last of the 2.x releases and that 2.7 is paving the road for 3.1 but I would expect that  2.7 would support  2.6 applications.

    Accepted Solution

    Not for binary extensions like the one you're trying. 2.7 supports Python code written for 2.6
