I've been googling for almost two hours now trying to find a solution, but I haven't come across anything that works yet.

I followed this guide EXACTLY:


but no results. When I run my setup.bat, a window comes up and disappears quickly. No new directories are created but I don't get an error...

Can someone walk me through some troubleshooting steps? I'd really like to get this to work...

I'm using Windows XP.

When I ran it from the command prompt, I got this error:

'python' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

So then I figured...I should put my files in the same directory as python (even though all the tutorials I read said I could put it anywhere I wanted...).

I tried it and it worked! :D

Any ideas on a way to be able to run my set up from any directory?


Can you post the contents of your scripts.

I know that sometimes they seem, but the users of the forum are not wizards, so they can not guess what you have written on the scripts.

And that "solution" of copying to the python folder, is not a real solution, for sure.

Cheers and Happy coding
