I don't really know, how can I see which Python (if there are many
flavours) I have installed? The setup file when started only says it
is going to install Python 2.2 for Windows.
OTH the README for ViewCVS says any Python higher than 1.5 should do
and mine is 2.2...

Maybe this identifies correctly if what I have can be used (command
session output):
Python 2.2 (#28, Dec 21 2001, 12:21:22) [MSC 32 bit (Intel)] on win32
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

I think that I have the version that does not create problems with
WinCvs 1.3 when installed, whatever that might be.
The link you provided above leads to a Windows Installer (msi) package
(uuurk), what do I do when I have already installed the Wise version
2.2? Uninstall first, then install and hope for the best?
