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'm having a problem with installing Starcluster on Windows 7. 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.
If possible, it would be great if someone could advise on getting around this problem...
