Bug Description

ok... instead of going on a long dissertation explaining my problems, here's a screenshot:

the only 2 files I've found after running the MSI are "pyglew.dll" and "glew32.dll" in the site-packages/ directory
I'm running Python 2.7.5 if that matters... >_>

ok...
I think 7 hours (the whole day for me) with no responce is a long enough wait...
may I request a site-packages/ tar.gz export of the build (both x86 and x64)

I have a project (in python) that desperatly needs this as it's now been too long running with just PyOpenGL alone.

if I can't get PyGPU working because PyGlew fails to install correctly on a WinXP x86 machine,
then this may as well be another scrap project for the recycle bin.

I'm tired of finding projects that promise exceptional features for python, but yet, the builds either fail or don't work.
here's a few examples:
- glewpy: setup.py - build fails (PyRex reports a compilation error)
- freetype-py: doesn't work (running the tests report major tracebacks with the system)
- PyWin32: win32.pyd cannot be found after initial run
- PyOpenCL (official download): build fails (I forget the issue here as I've obtained the unofficial builds which seem to work)
there are many more encounters I've had, and I'm sick of it.

seriously people, if you're not going to work on a project anymore, make sure people can get it working, or remove it.
(in the examples above, freetype-py is still being maintained, and can be excluded, but there are many others that aren't)
