You will end up confusing yourself very quickly if you insist on placing 
files in c:\Python27.  Please put them anywhere except that spot, say in 
downloads or on the desktop.  Let's assume your desktop is here 
c:\Users\ryguy7272\Desktop.  Open a cmd window then

cd c:\Users\ryguy7272\Desktop
setup.py install

should work if and only if you have the file types and file associations 
correctly set, please see 

Better still take the hard work out of it by getting pip by following 
the instructions here http://pip.readthedocs.org/en/latest/installing.html

My fellow Pythonistas, ask not what our language can do for you, ask
what you can do for our language.
