pymongo installation blocked on windows
windows 32 and 64, vista and 7. Installation via installer as recommended My immediate problem is with a vista 64 bit machine.
It appears to me that this is a problem with the windows installer that seems to be seeing wider use in PyPI. It is absolutely not a pymongo problem. The faulty installer has just spread to this package.
- I download the .exe
- Double click the exe
- The first installer window pops up and expands to the entire screen (inconvenient but tolerable. )
- click next to get to menu where I select the installation location.
- I am given one location choice in a window with two seemingly editable fields. Specifically the installer has found one python installation, the one in the registry.
I cannot clear the fields and specify another python installation. I definitely do not want to install pymongo in my default install of python. I think I can get around this. I have in the past with other packages. Today, happened to try pip, and in the course of that install I encountered a specific message from the pymongo team ( I think ) that suggested that I use the installer. I was concerned it would not work and indeed it did not.
