First let me begin by saying that the windows installer probably works pretty
badly because almost nobody uses it, so your comments are probably very valuable
to whomever does the windows installer (glyph?). Thus all my advice from
here onwards will pertain to the source distribution.

The admin/ directory contains stuff for the Twisted developers, not
for twisted users.

This is bad :)
Check out the stuff in the bin/ directory.
In general, assume you you don't need to change stuff to get Twisted
to work :)

Until Twisted fixes its windows installer, please try (and recommend
to your co-workers to try) the source distribtion (yes, I realize that
installing-twisted.html says otherwise)
