I tried this first; went to the suggested alternative second.  Here's 
what happens when I run

    python.exe C:\PYTHON22\LIB\SITE-P~1\CSV\SETUP.PY

usage: SETUP.PY [global_opts] cmd1 [cmd1_opts] [cmd2 [cmd2_opts] ...]
   or: SETUP.PY --help [cmd1 cmd2 ...]
   or: SETUP.PY --help-commands
   or: SETUP.PY cmd --help

error: no commands supplied
