Welcome to python.

You dont install from "Python GUI", use normal cmd, navigate to the 
folder you downloaded PyXML and PyWebDAV and run "python setup.py 
install" (python.exe has to be in your PATH). Then you have to find the 
startup-script "davserver". Find your python installation directory and 
look into <Install dir>/Tools/Scripts, in my computer this is 
E:\python27\Tools\Scripts. PyXML and PyWebDAV get installed in the 
site-packages folder i.e. E:\python27\Lib/site-packages. You might have 
to look for "davserver" there...
