When running init --settings='myproject.settings.main' (as specified in tutorial 1) I received:

C:\www\webroot\myproject> init --settings='myproject.settings.main'
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\Python24\Lib\site-packages\django-1.0.0-py2.4.egg\django\bin\", line 103, in ?

    raise EnvironmentError, "Could not import %s '%s' (is it on sys.path?): %s"% (ENVIRONMENT_VARIABLE, me.SETTINGS_MODULE, e)
EnvironmentError: Could not import DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE ''myproject.settings.main'' (is it on sys.path?): No module named 'myproject.settings.main'

The problem is with the quotes around the module name (--settings='myproject.settings.main'). Running init --settings=myproject.settings.main (no quotes) works correctly.
