Actually, I installed easy_install setuptools for Windows 
(setuptools-0.6c11.win32-py2.7.exe). Running easy_install generated an error 
"Setuptools version 0.6c9 or greater has been installed.
(Run " -U setuptools" to reinstall or upgrade.)"

I did, quite something happened but the same error message came back when 

So, I installed it another way, indicated by Paul Kölle:
"navigate to the folder you downloaded PyXML and PyWebDAV and run "python
install" (python.exe has to be in your PATH). "

That worked fine, but:

There is no davserver script or executable. Please read my response to Paul
