So I decided to install the developers version of CP. I think my idea is making some litle mods or combine modules to create new modules. This is my first real programming experience (I guess autohotkeys doesn’t count hehe) so I hope I can survive it and hope you can survive my fool-sounding-newbie questions.
I’ve installed MatplotLib, WxPython, JDK,Tortoise, MinGW, Cython,MySQLdb, Numpy, Scipy, PIL, InnoSetup and py2exe. As far as I checked they were all the py2.5 compatible versions.
I created a folder on the desktop and with Tortoise I transfered there the files from svnrepos.broadinstitute.org/Cel … llProfiler
Python and MinGW seem to be located at c:\Python25 and c:\MinGW\bin.
I made with notepad a file containing:
and named it: distutils.cfg then I moved it to c:\Python25\Lib\distutils\
Now there are two points that I don’t get.
1)“After installing MinGW and Python, place them both on your system environment path. If you chose the default install directories, this should probably be c:\Python25 and c:\MinGW\bin.”
How or what do I “place in my system environment path”? Are they already there?
2)“Unzip files to a directory (using an extraction package such as Winzip or similar), open a command prompt and cd to that directory, and type python setup.py install”
Errr…what am I suppose to unzip?
I cd to that folder and sent “python setup.py install” but it says that it doesn’t recognize the command “python”. I certainly missed something right?
Thanks a lot for you time and effort!
