Just ran the installer but something is wrong. When I run python and try to import SimpleCV it is not found. The SimpleCV folder is present and full of files so it was unpacked OK. I guess that there is something file missing from the python 2.7.3 site-packages folder (or .pth file missing) but I have no idea what.

Can anybody help with information on how Python links to the OpenCV files and what is needed?

Think I have found the problem. The install.bat file has hard-coded paths to places such as c:/SimpleCV1.3, but I installed into sub directories of c:\Program Files. I'll have a go at updating the paths and see if that sorts it.
