There are no upstream packages of NumPy 1.4.1 for Python 2.7 on
Windows, but that doesn't mean that it doesn't work. Python 2.7 didn't
exist at the time for that version of NumPy (the two release dates
were off by a month last year).

The current stable version of NumPy is 1.5.1, which has a Windows
package for Python 2.7:

Within the Python 2.x series, it is often much easier to upgrade to a
later version of Python than it is to make a package compatible with
older versions.
