Hi John - I found your email address on the setup splashscreen for
matplotlib for windows.

Can you please help me with an error which is blocking me?

1. I have installed Python2.7 but placed it in d:\Python27 instead of
the default location of c:\Python27
2. Now I am trying to install matplotlib from matplotlib-1.1.0.win32-py2.7.exe

However, the setup program says Python 2.7 is not installed. It then
throws me to a screen which has a field for Python location but it is
not typeable.

I am blocked.

How do I tell the setup program where Python is installed?

Please help.
