how to install packages in activepython windows

i was given the below instructions. i only got step 1 done...have no idea on the others. much appreciated if you can help!

Instructions
      1. Get Python 2.7 running on your platform. For Windows, the ActiveState ActivePython is the best choice.

      2. I believe that ActivePython comes with a package manager called PyPM. Run it and install the following packages through it:

            1. openpyxl
            2. pandas
            3. tweepy
            4. show
            5. say

      3. Unpackage the provided archive.

Not sure I necessarily agree that ActiveState's ActivePython is the best python choice on windows, but there's certainly nothing wrong with it.  Here are the details on using pypm:  http://docs.activestate.com/activepython/2.7/pypm.html#what-is-pypm

Pypm should have been added to your path.  If it was, then shell out to a command prompt and type:

pypm install openpyxl

pypm install pandas

pypm install tweepy

And so on...
