This sounds like the same issue as - where is Django located on your drive (/django? or /somewhere/django?)

Here's what I did to install it on Windows without too much mind bending:

  • Download 'Django-0.96.tar.gz' or whatever the latest version into C:\1 directory
  • Unzip it - the directory 'C:\1\Django-0.96' got created
  • All from the command prompt:
  • Run: subst J: C:\1\Django-0.96
  • Run: J:
  • Run: install - now it works flawlessly.
  • Run: C:
  • Run: subst J: /d
