I cannot answer the original question.

But: do you need ez_setup at all?
 From your text it's clear that you are using Python on Windows.

Therefore I suggest you to forget about the obscure Python installation
tools and look at:
Find there the Python modules that you want to install. Then just
download the proper windows installers (for the module and all its
prerequisites) and install the modules' binaries in the way which is
usual in Windows.

Or are you trying to install a package that is not listed on the
above-mentioned site?


I don't consider that particularly sound adice. easy_install is hardly an "obscure Python installation tool". If you get pip it will look after the dependancies for you. The site you're referenced is unofficial. FWIW I've used it and never had a problem, but it's certainly a case of "buyer beware".

My fellow Pythonistas, ask not what our language can do for you, ask what you can do for our language.
