Installing Django to virtualenv on Windows

I have set up a virtualenv and installed django after activating the virtualenv (env). I can see the file in the scripts folder within env. However when i try running
.\scripts\ startproject projectname

Open in new window

it opens the file in notepad rather than running the python script.

Where have I gone wrong?
