Google Data Python library

Hello, I am installing the  Google Data Python library and I need to run this command in IDLE ./setup.py install  do I simply open setup.py from the IDLE and press F5 to run it?

I have tried this a couple of times and nothing seems to happen, after running the set-up.py script I looked at running the a test using ./tests/run_data_tests.py but I get an error of gdata does not exist. Which I think is happening because setup.py did not install.

You need to run everything in cmd.exe
After you launch it, navigate to the directory with unpacked
source code and execute command from here. Example:

C:\Users\yourname> cd Downloads

C:\Users\yourname\Downloads> cd gdata-2.0.18

C:\Users\yourname\Downloads\gdata-2.0.18> dir


C:\Users\yourname\Downloads\gdata-2.0.18> python setup.py install

Open in new window

And get yourself a better editor. IDLE suxx - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d1a4Jbjc-vU#t=540
