 all the discussion last week I am now getting to installing and test; 
however, I am having a problem with the buildBot install itself.
>I already had Python 2.7.2 installed. PyWin32, SetupTools, and Zope.Interface all installed just fine.
>Looking at the buildbot.net website, seems to recommend using SetupTools to install. However, this fails:

Ok. I'm looking through http://trac.buildbot.net/wiki/RunningBuildbotOnWindows a bit more closely, and at the very least I noticed an inconsistency in the documentation in the "prerequisites" - the list of software differs from the ordered steps in that the ordered steps lists two additional pieces of software - Jinja2 and PyOpenSSL.Are these two needed? Supposing they both provide required or additional functional then shouldn't they be listed in the software list - even if the text "(optional)" is listed with them?

Installing them does not resolve the problem below.

I can try installing via pip. I was just following the directions for install on the URL mentioned above, and the download page - both of which reference the easy_install method, neither reference pip.
