For a completely free setup, you can install PTVS into the Visual Studio "Integrated Shell" for a fully functional Python IDE. The general installation steps are:
- Uninstall any previous versions of "IronPython Tools" or PTVS (if any)
- Install a Python distribution (just an interpreter or a full distro)
- Install Visual Studio 2010 or 2012 (or the Free "Integrated Shell" which gives you the equivalent of “Python Express”)
- Run the PTVS installer & you're in business.
