Issue #200 resolved

win-amd64.exe cannot be installed

Having problems here installing http://pypi.python.org/packages/2.6/r/reportlab/reportlab-2.5.win-amd64-py2.6.exe . Neither setuptools 0.6c11 nor distribute 0.6.14 gets it right.

    My bad, or it was just a messy situation? Here is the real output: http://paste.lisp.org/+2LHV The problem is that distribute installs the .exe but then in turn does not find the installed egg because that went into a win32 folder (instead of win-amd64). And it goes to download the source distro, which is also BAD because on windowze you'll want a precompiled binary, which IS available for reportlab.
