    Question Install Python 3.0a5 on Windows Vista System



    I have been unable to install Python 3.0a5 on a Windows Vista OS / AMD64 AthlonX2 CPU PC.

    I downloaded the Python 3.0a5AMD64 installation package. But when I try to install it, Vista signals that, 'Installation package could not be opened.'

    I would appreciate instructions on how to go about installing Python 3.0a5 on a Vista / AMD64 platform -- if it is possbile.

    Cheers,

    Hugh

    Hi Hugh,
    This is a discussion forum for Python for Nokia, so replying here isn't a right thing, but still you asked so please check this webpage

    http://www.neuralwiki.org/index.php?..._Windows_Vista

    a little bit of Googling would have helped you.

    I haven't tried it so can't say if this solution would help you.
    IDEAS is all they need but still they think only Genius can give them that.

    Shubhendra;

    Thanks for your reply.

    Of course I 'googled' looking for a sollution. That, in fact, is how I encountered this discussion board.

    I was not aware that discussions here could not relate to Python in general. I found no such statement on the site. Nevertheless if I have intruded where I am not welcome, I apologize.

    I have tried your sollution. It did not work -- but thanks all the same.

    Cheers,

    Hugh

    It's like generic C++ vs. Symbian C++.

    People here know all about S60 python specialities, can't find a better place anywhere, but unfortunately not too much about generic python. In general cases you would usually get a suggestion to check some python resource elsewhere.

    You are always free to ask, no problem with that! Getting answers is the difficult part

    Cheers,

    Hi Hugh,

    From the error message you get, it seems that the version you downloaded is corrupt

    Since your question is about installing Python on a PC, you may want to ask it on core python forums,

    http://python-forum.org/pythonforum/index.php

    http://www.daniweb.com/forums/forum114.html

    You may get better response while posting there.
