It looks like you are trying to build CGKit from source on a Windows 
machine. If you are on Windows you should download the binary installer 
(.exe) for the Python version you are using and run that. According to 
this page:
if you use only the "general purpose modules" then the only external 
dependency is Python itself. So see if you can get that much working first.
