Additional Comments

I installed the following components BEFORE installing fx composer: vcrun2005 dx9_43 dx10 mono210 dotnet20 dotnet20_sp2 However, not all may be required. If the windows python installer does not appear near the end of install, check to make sure the proper components were installed, and try again. Bumblebee users: make sure to optirun. This was tested on a Geforce GT630m using nvidia-304 with bumblebee.
