Hi All,

I am using Python v3.2 in Windows 7.
During 2nd chapter, while registering the package in PyPi,
I got a problem.

After the command
C:\Python32\python.exe setup.py register,

I was asked to select an option from 1-4, and selected 1 for using my existing login. After I pressed 1, it again prompts for same option. It keeps on continuing until by using Ctrl-Z to exit.
I am attaching a screenshot of that.

Please help me.

Had this problem myself...took me AGES to sort it as I couldn't even register with this forum for over a week! Anyway, trial and error led me to this solution:

+Download and install Python2.7.1
+Use it to upload a program to pypi and save your register details at the same time
+Now Uninstall the 2.7.1 version of Python
+Try to Uninstall Python3.2 but use the 'Repair' option to make sure the file type associations with your Python files are kept in order. Worked for me:)

I get this error when trying to run "python3 setup.py register". I already have an account. So I select option 1.

Server response (403): You are not allowed to store 'nester' package information

Please see the paragraph entitled "Important PyPI Information" on this page: http://python.itcarlow.ie/. Please do not use the main (real) PyPI site for nester modules... use the Test PyPI site instead.

Thanks. :-)
