Re: Error installing StarCluster 0.95.2 on Windows 7

Hi Sergio,

You have a similar issue to the one I had. If you try the Anaconda python distribution this issue seems to disappear - at least for me for version 0.95.

The bad side of this is that you may need to reinstall your Python base. The Good side is that you get all sorts of perks such as many scientific libraries installed and have other nice abilities for free.

I suggested that starcluster should also have a conda install option - yet there seems to be little demand currently. Perhaps this will change.

I hope this works for you.
