Python on Windows XP 64-bit: python not found in registry

  1. Default Python on Windows XP 64-bit: python not found in registry

    After first trying to install the beta of Python 2.6 on my Windows XP
    64-bit machine I finally succeeded installing 2.5.2. But I still have
    a some problem: Installing iPython, PIL, easy_install etc fails saying
    that python.exe cannot be found (although I can start the python
    interpeter just fine). The problem is that python cannot be found in
    the registry. I tried Effbot's solution of adding Python to the
    registry, but that doesn't help:

    Anybody here that had the same problem and solved it?

    Thanks.

    > Anybody here that had the same problem and solved it?

    Did you install the 32-bit or the 64-bit installer?

    If the 64-bit installer, did you also install 32-bit or 64-bit
    installers for iPython, PIL, and easy_install?

    If you try to use 32-bit extensions or installers to locate a 64-bit
    Python, that will fail: even if installation would succeed, you still
    couldn't use the resulting installations, since you just can't mix
    the two architectures in a single process.
