iPython

Hi

I'm trying to install iPython on Windows 7/XP

http://ipython.org/download.html

I have tried it on two machines. I have encountered two problems:

(1) When installing on a computer with Python 3.2 the installation fails at the last step.
(2) On a computer with Python 2.7, the installation seems to work but when I write iPython at the dos prompt I'm told that iPython does not exist. Nothing appears in the start menu so how to start iPython?

1. Try to start ipython from the directory where you installed it:

   cd to the ipython directory and then try starting by entering ipython again

2. If you are on a 64 Bit System you will have no luck with the ipython Windows installer try installing via easy install instead

3. You might want to consider using  http://sourceforge.net/projects/console/ instead of the standard windows cmd

Check http://ipython.org/ipython-doc/stable/install/install.html#windows for additional installation tips or post back here
