You must have admin rights on the machine and install the package
as admin if you have installed Python in the same way.

Please check whether the files are all there in \Python21\mx
and subdirs. If not, you are having a permission problem. Distutils
packages install directly into the Python distribution per default
and depending on how you've installed Python itself, you may
run into trouble when installing extensions using some other
user account.
