Re: problems with installing under Windows 7

Hi Emillia,

Did you try pip install?

I recently installed the latest version of starcluster on windows 7 and I recall needing to switch between easy_install and pip install to get the installation done.

If you install anaconda or PythonXY for a python stack then you have pip as part of the tools installed and do not need to install it separately, you also get a bunch of libraries and a good python editor - Spyder and iPython as part of the installation.

I hope this simplifies the installation for you.

I've installed Python 2.7.6, along with the two dependencies (setuptools 0.6rc11 and pycrypto 2.3), but get the error below when I type easy_install StarCluster from the command line. The path includes Python installation's Script directory, as recommended in the instructions.
