Windows XP machine, I downloaded enthon-python2.4-1.0.0.exe and
matplotlib-0.87.5.win32-py2.4.exe. I installed python first (it’s
version 2.4.3) via the Enthought executable; it installed fine with no
errors. Then matplotlib installed fine with no errors.
I installed the matplotlib_examples_0.87.1.zip examples and tried to
run the barchart_demo.py script; here’s the error message I got:
`RuntimeError: module compiled against
version 1000002 of C-API but this version
of numpy is 90907
The import of the numpy version of the nxutils module,
_nsnxutils, failed. This is is either because numpy was
unavailable when matplotlib was compiled, because a dependency of
_nsnxutils could not be satisfied, or because the build flag for
this module was turned off in setup.py. If it appears that
_nsnxutils was not built, make sure you have a working copy of
numpy and then re-install matplotlib. Otherwise, the following
traceback gives more details:

following shows I can import numpy OK:

I would very much like to be able to use matplotlib, as it looks much
better suited to my needs than gnuplot. Any ideas on how to address
