Believe me I had no intent of expanding this thread beyond looking for a
straight and simple insight to Python distribution (portability,
whatever) and how to get my partner squared away. The general issue
seems to drifted off on its own accord. I find generally that once I've
had to post five times on a topic, and haven't gotten a satisfactory
answer, I'm not going to get one.
Yes, you are quite correct about numpy, but for reasons which I have no
plans to explain, I want my partner on the same version of numpy as
myself. I now have the answer I need, and I do not care one more wit
about a one character change.
I'm done here.

Well, it should be there. Perhaps it was installed by a different user,
and will only show up when that user goes into CP?
Do you recall what procedure you have used for installation?

Correct. I keep building the installers, but was asked to put Python
Software Foundation into the creator field of the MSI file.

There is no way this can be attributed to an addition of a single character.
In your partner's version of numpy.testing, there is no name NumpyTest.
That sounds alright - in my version of numpy, there is no
numpy.testing.NumpyTest, either. However, the line in
special\__init__.py, on my system, reads
from numpy.testing import Tester
So it looks like that the scipy version and the numpy version don't

That's a fantastic response to give to people who were actually
willing to sacrifice their time to help you with your problems. I'm
always stunned at those who come here in ignorance somehow "knowing"
what the correct answer they wanted is, even when it runs counter to
responses from far more experienced people.
Good luck continuing to get help here with that attitude.

“Drifted off” bullshit. A whole lot of responders have wasted a whole lot of
time trying to get to the bottom of your “one-character change”, and now you
try to pretend it wasn't the issue at all.

To be fair, it wasn't, little though he knew it.
