Hello:Python 2.6 is up on the website python.org. just make sure you grab 32-bit, as most setups don't have a 64-bit version and they won't run with python 64 without they know to look for it in the registry.

Laura, I've tried compiling the Mercurial source. It is a can of worms. I don't know what to say about the python version.

In particular, I need mercurial, which is implemented in python, and so I also need to install python. When I tried installing mercurial without python, it printed an error that I needed python 2.6. So I went to python.org, and the closest I could find was 2.7.2. I downloaded and installed that, but when I went back to try and install mercurial again, it gave the same error -- something about needing python 2.6 which it looked for and didn't find in the registry. These installers are all binaries, so I have no idea what registry entries mercurial is looking for. Does anyone have advice? I suppose I could get the mercurial source and compile it with python 2.7.2. But really, I think there should be a simpler solution.
