Installing Mutagen Package On Windows

P: n/a
Hey, I've run into another problem. I am trying to install the Mutagen
package to use as my first useful program, but can't figure out how to
install it on windows. The README says it is a simple application of--

Installing
----------
$ ./setup.py build
$ su -c "./setup.py install"

--but I ran c:\>python c:\python25\tools\scripts\setup.py build and did
similarly for setup.py. I also added c:\python25 and
c:\python25\tools\scripts to my path, but this hasn't worked. I have
heard of 'easy_install' but don't know how to run easy_install. So, I
ask for a reference because Google did not give me a quick answer and
the python.org explanation at PEP 250 doesn't really explain what I
should do.

You need to call

python2.5 setup.py install

and google for setuptools, python, easy_install to find out all about it
you need.

The setup.by you have to run is the one included in the Mutagen package,
not that one.
Unless the author provides more specific instructions, the usual way is:

- Unpack the archive into any temporary directory
- Open a console (cmd) and change to that temporary directory (cd
c:\some\temp\dir)
- Execute this command:
python setup.py install
- That's all

If you get any error, post the whole error message here, but for specific
help on the package it would be better to contact the author directly.
