Tks vm for your reply. I was able to get the script
to run with your "examples" directory. Much
However, when I unzipped the py.60a.zip files over my
site-packages directory and re-ran the script, I got
the following error:

It looks like you make have a corrupt stock data file.
I was able to load the stock_demo example using both
the numeric and numarray win32 builds, with either
