For anyone really wanting to try on win32/amd64 that doesn't have a compiler, I
think I have managed to create some binary installers using bdist_wininst. They
are available at


If you use any kind of paragraphs you'll need to install the corresponding pyRXP
at present.

I'm not sure how this stuff is supposed to work with virtual environments, but
for a global install it should work.

This was much harder than I expected with a lot of the problems coming from
distutils apparently failing to produce properly when run from in side a venv
(at least when preparing the bdist_wininst).
