If you install IronPython, an implementation of Python that targets the CLR.

Python has basically nothing to do with Visual Studio.

It is a separate programming language not bound to any Integrated Development Environment (IDE)

If you mean with 'running under Visual Studio' being able to call windows functions, then you should look at Python's windows bindings:
You have Python modules (win32), which allow to call windows functionality.

You can also write DLLs with visual studio and call them from Python with the module ctypes or by creating a Python wrapper.

To use VisualStudio as IDE wouldn't be a good idea. For this you can use any of the existing Python IDE's or just a simple editor.

In order to avoid any misinterpretation of your question.

What exactly do you understand with "running under VisualStudio"?

As far as I know, but I didn't check recently. IronPython is no more really supported, so perhaps not the best way to go.

From http://blog.ironpython.net/, Wednesday, May 15, 2013
On behalf of the IronPython team, I'm happy to announce the first alpha release of IronPython 2.7.4.
Unless they stopped supporting it this month, I suppose that would indicate they are still supporting it  ; )

It's been a while since I've had IronPython installed on a machine (and I can't do so at work), but IIRC you may need to actually start a Python project in Visual Studio. Once you do that, I believe you will have access to a REPL interpreter via one of the windows--can't remember which one, unfortunately. I'm not sure if you can open the REPL without creating a Python project.

In browsing through the blog a bit futher, you *may* need to also install Python Tools for Visual Studio.

No worries. I think at one point it was that way.
