To install pip on Windows, you need to first install its predecessor – easy install. However, if you’re using a 64-bit distribution of Python then the .exe installers here will give you this error when you run it:
This is due to a distutils installer compatibility issue, but all’s not lost, you just need to download the ez_setup.py and run it, it will then download the appropriate .egg file and install it for you.
You then need to add the Scripts folder in your Python distribution, e.g. C:\Python27\Scripts to the Windows path, and open up a DOS prompt and run easy_install pip and voila!
