I am trying to install Trac on a Windows Server 2008 R2 server 64-bit.

I am following the guide on I first installed Python, installing the Python 2.7.2 Windows Installer. (32-bit version).

Then, I tried to install Setup Tools using the guidelines here:

It seemed to install successfully, however when I run easy_install i always get:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\Python26\Scripts\", line 5, in <module>
      from pkg_resources import load_entry_point
ImportError: No module named pkg_resources

Searching on google about the pkg_resources all pointed to an incorrectly installed setuptools, but I followed all the steps!

any ideas

This is incredibly late (but better late than never I suppose!).

Take a look at the installer version: Python 2.7.2 Then take a look at your traceback (+1 for posting that): The error is in C:\Python26\..

You want to either change your PATH environment variable to point to your Python 2.7 install path (presumably C:\Python27\), or use the Python 2.6 installer for setuptools.
