I'm not a Windows user myself, so my suggestions will be a bit hit-or-miss. But the one Windows system I did test on was a 64-bit Windows 7 machine, so I have some hope we can get it working for you.

Two things might be in play here:
  1. You need to install Python before running the PRSAnnots installer.
  2. You should run the PRSAnnots installer as Administrator. When I tried it as a normal user, I got several registry errors, which might be the ones you give above. PRSAnnots still worked, but the uninstaller didn't.

I don't understand what you mean here. Did you get these errors while installing Python? Or did you install Python, and then get these errors while installing PRSAnnots? If it's the former, you're going to have to take it up with the Python installer people. If it's the latter, please see point 2, above. Try deleting all the installed files of PRSAnnots and reinstalling as Administrator.

I'm afraid you're going to have to post the error messages before I have a chance of figuring them out.
