I don't typically develop on Windows with Python. I assume that this is 
the 64 bit version of setuptools as well and not an x86 version 
shoehorned into an existing Python install? I only ask the latter, 
because it is supposedly possible with some registry trickery to install 
the 32 bit version (I've never tried) which may exhibit weirdness.

There's an unofficial/unsupported build of setuptools for amd64 here 
that may work (it worked in my case): 

Be sure to read the warnings on that page as they do appear to be based 
off exceedingly new code taken directly from each project's repository, 
so there may be bugs--but it did work for me since I couldn't get the 
PyPI distro to install. :)

Hope this helps!
