I looked in my easy_install.pth and it looks like it should be:

.\Multimedia\pyglet-1.0

But I don't really see any reason not to do it the way you were
earlier with the full path name. Besides, you should be able to
install pyglet to your site-packages folder. Or you could use buildout
if you're just testing modules and you don't want to screw up your
namespace.
