Adding Python Path on Windows 7


Question

I've been trying to add the Python path to the command line on Windows 7, yet no matter the method I try, nothing seems to work. I've used the set command, I've tried adding it through the Edit Environment variables prompt etc.

Further more if I run the set command on the command line it lists this

python = c:\python27

Yet it still doesn't recognize the Python command.

Reading the documentation, and various other sources hasn't seemed to help.

Edit: Just to clarify further, I've appended the path of the Python executable to PATH in edit environment prompt. Doesn't seem to work.
