Found others with same issue, but no resolution. What' I've done

C:\PythonProjects\AlienInvasion>python.exe -c "import distutils.util; print(distutils.util.get_platform())" win32

C:\PythonProjects\AlienInvasion>pip -v install C:\PythonProjects\AlienInvasion\pygame-1.9.3-cp27-cp27m-win32.whl

Config variable 'Py_DEBUG' is unset, Python ABI tag may be incorrect

Config variable 'WITH_PYMALLOC' is unset, Python ABI tag may be incorrect

not sure if the 2 config warnings are significant. Learning Python, so all this is new. Not new to programming, so tried quite a few things, all end with saying "is not a supported wheel on this platform"

    uninstalled python w32, installed 64bit instead. Tried this with 64bit version... still having same issue, saying the wheel is wrong for this platform. I am using Windows 10
