# Installing Numpy on 64bit Windows 7 with Python 2.7.3

It looks like the only 64 bit windows installer for Numpy is for Numpy version 1.3.0 which only works with Python 2.6

http://sourceforge.net/projects/numpy/files/NumPy/

It strikes me as strange that I would have to roll back to Python 2.6 to use Numpy on Windows, which makes me think I'm missing something.

Am i?

Try the unofficial binaries on this site

You can get the newest `numpy`

x64 with or without Intel MKL libs for Python 2.7 or Python 3.
