where to find python eggs for matplotlib 1.0.0?

Hi all,
on my workplace I use matplotlib in restricted Windows environment.
Since couple of versions matplotlib Windows installer needs elevated
user privileges to work (why?), but installation from Python eggs was
working just fine. However I can not find any eggs for latest
matplotlib, and those on PyPI are for previous release, i.e. 0.99.3.
So can somebody point me to Python eggs for matplotlib on Python 2.6
under Windows? Or how can I build one, for example from working
installation of matplotlib 1.0.0 on the identical platform?

Best regards,
Pavlo Shchelokovskyy

I haven’t tried matplotlib on Windows, but on Linux, we are able to install the various SciPy packages locally by using “python setupegg.py install --local”. This does require the use of a build environment, though. I don’t know if there is an equivalent for Windows, but I wouldn’t be surprised if there was.

Correction – “python setupegg.py install --user”

Sorry for the confusion.

The matplotlib installers for Windows are built with the user-access-control=auto option. Otherwise they would not work correctly with UAC on Windows Vista and 7. See also http://www.mail-archive.com/matplotlib-users@lists.sourceforge.net/msg13466.html.

I can provide eggs for the next release.

Python bdist_wininst installers are valid ZIP files. You can open matplotlib-1.0.0.win32-py2.6.exe with a ZIP program, e.g. WinRAR, and extract the directories/files found under PLATLIB into C:\Python26\Lib\site-packages.
