Ok, I hope I'm not misunderstanding you.
You go to
and you download PyScripter (windows installer). Then you run the
downloaded file (that would be PyScripter-setup.exe) and that will
install PyScripter in your machine. You run PyScripter, click the "open"
 button or menu File/Open... and choose the program you want to debug.
It  will be opened in an edit window in your PyScripter main window.
Then you click on "Step into subroutine" button or just press <F7> and
you'll be in the first line of your program. From then on you keep
clicking "Step into subroutine" (<F7>) or "Step over next function call"
(<F8>) or "Step out of the current subroutine" or "Run to cursor" as you
see fit. You can add breakpoints just by clicking to the left of the
line numbers or the appropriate button. You can watch what's going on in
your program in the lower partition of your main window where you have a
"Call Stack" tab and also "Variables", "Watches", "Breakpoints",
"Output" and "Messages" tabs.
