Yes, it does.

Doesn't it install with distutils?  If so "python --install"
or whatever it says in the README would work.   Sorry, I haven't
installed it lately.

If it doesn't have instructions, put the files under the 
c:/python/lib/site-packages directory.

Install, then type "from pysnmp import session"....   ;-)

(If you're having troubles, please note versions and platform
next time, for Python, PySNMP, and Windows.)
