A number of QGIS plugins require the Python package SciPy to be installed. This package is available using the OSGeo4W package based installer or precompiled for Windows, but is not provided as part of the Windows standalone installer.
The SciPy windows installer does not recognize the Python instance installed with the QGIS standalone install, and so will not install to it.
Can anyone provide a simple solution to installing the SciPy package into the QGIS standalone python instance that is suitable for an inexperienced python user? Any help would be really appreciated.
