As it happens, I'm the author of PyRunner.  PyRunner is distributed as a
compressed file (either in zip or tar.gz format).  You need to unpack
the file you downloaded.  Assuming you're using Windows, WinZip is
usually the program of choice for this.  Get it here:


Regrettably, there is no self-extracting executable installer for
PyRunner at this time.

I hope this is what you meant, as I can't think of anything else.  If
not please elaborate on the problem and I'll try to help.
