I just right-clicked on My Computer --> Properties --> Advanced --> 
Environment Variables, and added a new one called PYTHONPATH. I don't 
know if that edits the registry, but you don't *manually* have to edit 
the registry if you do it that way...unless of course you aren't 
supposed to be doing it that way! But it worked anyway. :)
