I'm trying to setup everything in order to start developing with python and Django on a Windows 7 laptop. I already installed python 2.7.11 from here and installed pip using the get-pip.py script and the instructions from this website. Now I'm trying to install virtualenv because I'm also following the heroku's tutorial to get started with python which indicates to do so, so I ran the command "pip install virtualenv" but the command prompt just stays stuck forever showing the typical white dash blinking endlessly.
What can I do? I just want to get past the setup phase and start to actually develop stuff with Django. I was thinking of not using pip at all but then how would I go about installing packages? Should I start from scratch using a virtual machine with Ubuntu instead?
