Windows can't find the "easy_install.exe" because it's not in C:\ and 
not in your PATH environment variable.

I've no windows here, but from reading the docs you've probably 
installed "easy_install" in your python scripts subdirectory. So you 
have to go there before you can run it:
C:\>cd \Python2x\Scripts (x depends on your installed python version)
C:\Python2x\Scripts>easy_install SQLObject

Or you add the scripts directory to your PATH:

If you can't find out where it's installed, try searching for
