Hi

I installed Python on my Macbook with no problem, but for my PC, will be my client dev machine, There doesn't seem to be an obvious Windows installation link. on pygame.org
They are all tar's and dmg's.
Where is the Windows  (7) zip
?

Does 3.3.5 come with pygame included?

Thanks

Thanks a lot

There are a few choices there. Not any obvious ones for Windows 7
I'm assuming a windows DL will be a .zip? what is a (sig) ?
How will Windows know what to do with a tar file? or an OS X link?

What is an MSI installer. Why does the processor matter?

Must I just choose the x64 MSI link and also do the help file?
Or, should I sart with the help file?

[edit]
That help fie is blank!
What a crock

There are two installers on the page (MSI) one for x86 (32 bit) and one for x64 (64 bit)  (and the manual installers)- just choose the one (MSI) for your system

How embarrassing!

Of course.
As soon as I right clicked into my Computer properties, I found 64 bit processor somewhere there, and it all worked. Thanks. I just didn't want to risk a tangle, because having to install corrections over mistakes again and again is bad, m'kay.
Thanks
