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 
https://docs.python.org/2/using/windows.html#executing-scripts

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
