Can't install on Windows

Anonymous created an issue

So I downloaded the .zip from here: http://pypi.python.org/packages/2.6/S/Sphinx/Sphinx-1.1.3-py2.6.egg#md5=f0873b56630070f661ec3abc3eaf4457

and tried to install it using easy_install. It fails with

"error: Couldn't find a setup script ..."

    Could you tell me the full error log in your installation?

    I downloaded Sphinx-1.1.3-py2.6.egg and run bellow command.

    D:\py26\> easy_install Sphinx-1.1.3-py2.6.egg
    Processing Sphinx-1.1.3-py2.6.egg
    creating d:\py26\lib\site-packages\Sphinx-1.1.3-py2.6.egg
    Extracting Sphinx-1.1.3-py2.6.egg to d:\py26\lib\site-packages
    Adding Sphinx 1.1.3 to easy-install.pth file
    ...
    Finished processing dependencies for Sphinx==1.1.3
    

    It's worked for me.

    hi, I am new to Sphinx, am on Win 7 Ultimate, have downloaded the Sphinx-1.1.3-py2.7.egg file. When it downloaded, the name of the file was not .egg, it was .zip. So, I renamed to .egg, and placed it in my c:\python27 folder. When I open the command prompt and run: C:\Python27 > easy_install Sphinx-1.1.3-py2.7.egg, I get this message: 'easy_install' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. I unzipped the zip file and there is nothing called "easy_install" in the zip. What do I have to do to "install" Sphinx? Thanks!
