Can you please cut and paste exactly what you tried and the failure 
messages, as there's a lot of smart people around here but we're not 
mind readers :)  Which Python and pip version are you using?  Did you 
install pip yourself or did it come with your Python installation?

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