Hello, I need to install the module pycrypto to run a program but ive been stuck for about 2 hours trying to figure out where to put it exactly. Ive tried in the folder where my program is, also in the usr/lib/python2.6/ using python setup.py install (i actually did build before install) but nothing works. Also, im new with python and im not sure how a installed module should look like cause right now its the white IDLE icon...

Btw, im using cygwin on windows

Sorry snippsat missed the cygwin bit, install setuptools or distutils and use easyinstall to install the module, if it is not in cygwin python packages like python-crypto (you can rerun cygwin setup.exe to select, deselect packages)
