Hi all,

The Quantum GIS package for windows comes with all the files (QT and Python) 
needed to execute the python plugins, but if you want to develop new python 
applications within QGIS you probablly would need more libraries than the 
ones bundled in the current distributed package. This said, if you installed 
Python on your windows machine you should not need anything else, because 
python itself set its python environmental variable during the install 
procedure. If you're encountering some errors with Python, that may be 
generated by different problems that would need to be more accurately 
investigated. You'r referring to a "Tim's tutorial", what exactly?
