    Hi,

    I would like to install setuptools for Python2.6 on Windows.
    Unfortunately I could only find setuptools-0.6c9-py2.6.egg but no *.exe
    for Python2.6. And as far as I understand I need setuptools to install a
    Python egg. I would be very appreciative for any help.

    Regards

    Rolf

    Wait maybe you should try this command

    >>> help(setuptools)


    :)

    1. Download setuptools-0.6c9-py2.6.egg
    2. Download setuptools-0.6c9.tar.gz
    3. Use 7-zip from http://www.7-zip.org/ to extract ez_setup.py from
    setuptools-0.6c9.tar.gz
    4. In a directory that contains setuptools-0.6c9-py2.6.egg and
    ez_setup.py run the command python ez_setup.py
    5. Add C:\Python26\Scripts to your path to run easy_install
