qwetzuiop - PTVS is simply an add-in to give VS Python editing/debugging/browsing/... capabilities. It does /not/ come with a python interpreter or python libraries.
In the Installation page, there are instructions for how to install Python and Python libraries:
see the part that says "What to do next".
Once youve installed Python & some libraries, you can right click on your project and install more packages via the integrated pip/easy_install dialog.
here's a video of the experience with Python Environments:
fundamentally the difference between windows & mac/linux is that windows unfortunately does not come bundled w python. as such you have to take the extra step of installing these. but this generally should not take more than a few minutes and you'll get
the latest versions. PTVS does its best to tell you where & which ones to install from, but you have to decide & perform the final installation action (ironpython vs cpython, 2.7 vs 3.x, 32 vs 64bit, which distro, etc).
let us know if more info is needed!
