It looks to me as if you've already installed pip and are trying to 
install dtrx :)  Version 7.1 is located here  I think you've got to specify the 
--allow-external flag to pip.  Perhaps you could confirm this from 
reading the log output?  Failing that simply download the file, extract 
everything and run python install

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