install Matplolib into Window (2013)

In 2013, Enthought enhanced its EPD and re-branded it as “Canopy”. It includes Python packages  Numpy, Scipy, IPython,Matplotlib, Pandas, Traits, Enaml. Although free version only has 32-bits version. It is enough for normal daily usage. You can download the free version “Canopy Express” in following link:


run the “canopy-1.0.3-win-32.msi” to do the installation.

However, I believe it is some issue on the kit, please don’t click on the “update” on the “welcome to Canopy” window. I tried once, the update is never finished and also it broke the dependency on pylab. I took me some time to search the internet to solve it ( the solution is manually update the numpy to a  newer version).
