    The next problem on win32 is that simplejson / setuptools wants a compiler on the system. See details at bottom of thread.

    The setuptools issue appears to have been resolved, so the issue appears to be that simplejson needs to fix it's egg with the latest setuptools release.

    Alternatively, it looks like someone is providing a binary version of simplejson that may also work around the issue.

      Hi Brian

      I'd come across discussion of this same simplejson issue on other platforms (without C compilers) before, and someone had mentioned being able to install it manually.  It may be worth googling to see if you can find the thread, rather than having to wait for a new build now that easy_install has been patched.
