You do have to install Python.  http://www.python.org/

I guess I need to install python but how to pass the file name to the script, is it through command line?
Dave BaldwinFixer of ProblemsCommented:
Yes, it would be.  Python doesn't have a GUI to run it.
Actually, when you install Python 3.3, it installs Python launcher for Windows (see http://docs.python.org/3/using/windows.html#launcher). The installer also creates the associations with the .py and .pyw extensions. Then you can add the first line inspired by UNIX script, and the wanted version of Python interpreter will be used for launching the script. Double clicking on the script icon can be used to launch it. Try the following:
print('Hallo World!')
s = input('Press Enter to finish')
