Win7. Why Don't Matplotlib, ... Show up in Control Panel Add-Remove?

See Subject. I use matplotlib, scipy, numpy and possibly one other module. If I go to the control panel, I only see numpy listed. Why? I use a search and find only numpy and Python itself. How can matplotlib and scipy be uninstalled?

In my Win7 (64bit) I have 32 bit python 2.6 installed.

matplotlib and numpy show under the add remove program functionality

"Python 2.6 matplotlib-0.99.3"
"Python 2.6 numpy-1.4.1"

Along with heaps of other libraries I have installed

Are you sure matplotlib is installed AND working?

To remove I can only suggest you install again and then remove

It and scipy work very well. I have 64-bit Win 7, HP Pavilon desktop. A re-examination shows the install files are all exe files, except I think for Python. I'm using 2.5 and need to stay there along with numpy 1.2.0. When you say uninstall, you must mean delete the file under C:\Python. Well, it's really not me that needs the help, it's my partner. He went off to 1.4, and it has caused trouble. Let's not go there. :slight_smile:

I think it should suffice to delete the:
- matplotlib
- mpl_toolkits
- and scipy (for scipy I don't know if there are more packages)
directories from C:\Python\Lib\site-packages. There is no more the
uninstaller can do. Sometimes the packages also place a RemoveXXX.exe
in the Python toplevel directory, but since it doesn't show up in the
registry, I think this will not work. When your registry is clean, if
I really would like to finally get "rid" of it, I would delete if it
were my own machine.

But I also would not like to "uninstall", but rather "hide", i.e., you
can rename it to some sensible name, e.g. matplotlib ->
matplotlib-10-08-09. Then you can reinstall the library with another
version without interference, and the files are not lost until the
installation is working finally.

Finally, there may be some matplotlib-blahblahblah.egg-info and
scipy-foobar.egg-info files in site-packages, where I don't know what
they do precisely. They are just plain text files, containing
meta-data about the package installed.
