I decided to upgrade to matoplotlib 0.99.1. I'm on Windows XP. I downloaded matplotlib-0.99.1.win32-py2.5.exe and ran it. It seemed to install. Now when I try "from matplotlib import pyplot", Python crashes with one of those "pythonw has encountered a problem and needs to close" messages. I tried uninstalling matplotlib, and I also uninstalled SciPy and upgraded that to the latest version (0.7.1) and then reinstalled matplotlib. Still crashes. Importing numpy on its own works, as does importing matplotlib on its own.
How can I fix this problem?
