I must be missing something obvious in installing Python 3.4.2...

Downloaded and installed 64-bit Python 3.4 and pywin32-219. Both installed smoothly on my 64-bit Win7 machine. I added C:\Python34 to the search path.

If I launch a Windows command window and run

        python -m ensurepip

I get the following:

Ignoring indexes: https://pypi.python.org/simple/
Downloading/unpacking setuptools
Cleaning up...
Exception:

The pip.log file contains the same text.

I'm sure I'm doing something obviously wrong here--but what?
