Hi Sergio:

The instructions on the StarCluster installation page ( seem to be pretty broken. That should get updated ... I'm certainly the WRONG guy for that job. :)

I use MobaXterm ( 'shell' environment on my Windows 7 boxes with GREAT success! While the Python plugin (available on the Plugins page) is only 2.6, it still works fine for a StarCluster install, and many other things as well. What a nice tool.

Good luck!
