    I am trying to follow the instructions for installing MayaVi given on
    the Enthought site:
    http://code.enthought.com/projects/mayavi/docs/development/html/mayavi/installation.html
    I'm following the step-by-step instructions to install with eggs under
    Windows. When I get to this point:
    easy_install Sphinx EnvisageCore EnvisagePlugins configobj
    Sphinx 0.6.3 is installed OK, but when envisagecore 3.1.1 is being
    installed, after doing a few steps it fails with the message:
    error: Setup script exited with error: Unable to find vcvarsall.bat

    A search showed that vcvarsall.bat is where you might expect to find
    it, in
    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC
    I'm not sure what to do now.

    Probably put that directory on your PATH. You will get better Mayavi support on
    the enthought-dev mailing list:
