These instructions must have misled you. This command only works if you
actually have a file c:\MySQL_python-1.2.2-py2.4-win32.egg on your disk,
e.g. after downloading it, from


If you haven't downloaded it, you have two choices

1. download it, and then give the full filename to easy_install
   (*not* c:\MySQL_python-1.2.2-py2.4-win32.egg, unless you download
   to c:\)

2. ask easy_install to download first, with

   easy_install MySQL-python
