You might estimate it by the size of those files; use a factor of 2 or 3  
due to compression.

python and gtx must be installed as any other Windows program, and  
probably require administrator rights. I don't know all of the remaining  
files, but they look like Python packages; the installer typically drop  
some files into c:\python26\lib\site-packages and register something.

Python and Gtk, yes. The other packages, maybe not.
