Description

Hi,

Unfortunately, setuptools (and hence pip, virtualenv, buildout, etc) won't consider .msi's as windows distros:

H:\>twisted_env\Scripts\easy_install http://tmrc.mit.edu/mirror/twisted/Twisted/10.0/Twisted-10.0.0.win32-py2.6.msi
Downloading http://tmrc.mit.edu/mirror/twisted/Twisted/10.0/Twisted-10.0.0.win32-py2.6.msi
Processing Twisted-10.0.0.win32-py2.6.msi
error: Not a recognized archive type: c:\temp\easy_install-tfym_t\Twisted-10.0.0.win32-py2.6.msi

Doing a bdist_wininst in addition to bdist_msi would make installation for Windows users of these tools much easier.

cheers,

Chris

The Windows msi builders now also build exes. These will be generated alongside the msis for the next release.
