 One year ago or so Colin sent me an adapted nsis-wingrass-installer-script
 with a first
 attempt to use a www.python.org-installation instead of a bundled osgeo4w-

 I hope that I can find this script, so I can make this available for
 further development.
 maybe this would be a good starting point for the GRASS-hackfest in Prague
 in May 2011.

 best regards

 p.s. BTW I have a lot of different python-version on my WinVista-laptop
 bundled with Inkscape, ArcGIS10, OpenOffice, etc. ... so I'm often
 that all this python-installations are working ...

 I have the nsis-script, but unfortunately not anymore the related mail.

 best regards
