$ easy_install Frozen-Flask

2) Build the source code examples:

$ python

3) Add the following entries to your hosts file:

4) Run the embedded server:

$ python

Once the server is running, access the examples through

Installing Python on Windows

Download and install Python 2.7.x from the Python download page.

Next, setuptools. Download and run the 2.7.x installer from:

Afterwards, you'll need to add both the Python directory (C:\Python27) and the scripts directory (C:\Python27\Scripts) to your PATH. To do this, go to My Computer ‣ Properties ‣ Advanced ‣ Environment Variables.

You should now be able to run the 'python' and 'easy_install' executables from the Windows shell. Success!
