There seems to be a problem with the setup procedure for win32. The same error manifests when I try to install using a package manager (both easy_install and pypm) and when I python2.7 setup.py install manually.
The result of running setup.py install from the Windows shell is a folder named "distribute-0.6.30-py2.7.egg" in /Lib/site-packages. (This folder doesn't contain much, but I can't compare the contents to what it "should" contain since that information isn't listed on the development page.) After running the install,
fails with an
ImportError: no module named distribute
By comparison, the usual pattern when I install a module from setup.py is that a folder with the same name as the package and containing useful .py files (
__init__.py, ...) is placed in /Lib/site_packages; and
Is there a command-line option that I'm missing, or is the package not being correctly installed?
