Installing `pip` on Windows

I found this solution on StackOverflow which worked for me on Windows 7:

  • Install Python (currently I'd use Python 2.7).
  • Add C:\Python27\Scripts to your %PATH% environment variable in order to be able to use Python and the the programs without naming the full path.
    Read more about this here
  • Install easy_install: Get it here.
  • Use easy_install to install pip:
    easy_install pip

Newer versions of Python

If you use Python 3.4+ you don't need to instal pip as Python ships with pip.exe nowadays. Just add its folder to the path and run it with your command:

set PATH=C:\Python34\Scripts;%PATH%
pip install bottle
