I have been trying to install pypol in cygwin. But when I do setup where I have to type python setup.py install then it displays an error as the following:
Traceback (most recent call last):

ImportError: No module named pkg_resourceserror
Its clear that some of the modules are missing in my setuptools but I installed the setuptools again and they are still not there. How do I get out of this problem? Please help. Thank you.
What is causing ImportError: No module named pkg_resources after upgrade of Python on os X?
is informative. It suggests that you're invoking the wrong version of
python. Do you already have
python installed under Windows?
If you do have another version of Python (you can probably check under cygwin with
which python) make sure that you're invoking the right one, which is most easily done by putting its binary path at the beginning of your
PATH environmental variable in your
~/.bashrc or similar.
setuptools with the correct python, and everything should go smoothly.
Really, the linked answer tells you all you need to know, except it's talking about multiple versions on OSX rather than Windows.
