Hi,

May I suggest you use pip and, possibly, virtualenv?
pip makes it easy to install Python packages while virtualenv creates an isolated Python environment

For instance, I just installed docx and its dependencies with:

pip install docx lxml datutils PIL

And I did that inside a testing virtualenv, so I wouldn't mess up my Python setup.

pip and virtualenv make it really easy and painless to install Python packages.

Cheers,

Pedro
