[Cubicweb] Installing cubes on Windows with NO_SETUPTOOLS=1

this works. Also, I had to install cubicweb itself without setuptools as 
yams still does not have a bin/yams-check.bat so that installation 
breaks at that point.

But without setuptools, cubes are properly installed in 

However, I had a problem as the above-mentioned cubes dir did not 
contain a __init__.py file after installation; I put it there manually 
to enable the imports.

Let me say that the instructions in the docs to set the environment 
variables pythonpath, path etc. did not fit my needs. Also, I still do 
not understand what the c:/documents and 
settings/jane/mydocuments/python26/cubicweb thing means.

Finally I have tried to create my very first instance:

C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\stefan\Eigene 
Dateien\dev\myblog>cubicweb-ctl create blog myblog
ERROR:  registry directory c:\python26\etc\cubicweb.d doesn't exist

The dir looks a bit Linux-like. Don't know where this might be stored on 
Windows. Any help would be very much appreciated. Is there a path 
variable for the registy?
