How to install scons in windows

Hi,
I tried once to install scons and I did after hours of digging in internet.
Now I had to update python to 2.7.4 version (was 2.4.3) and I 'm in the same situation like before:
The documentation about here http://docs.godotengine.org/en/latest/development/compiling/compiling_for_windows.html#setting-up-scons

It is not clear what people are suppose to do to make it work. It sound like : "here some links, now is up to you.. "

People are forced to waste hours each time happen to make some adjustments?
Can someone add in documentation this link: http://scons.org/doc/production/HTML/scons-user.html#idm139933257250608
and a basic example/user-case how and where use this command line: "python setup.py install --standard-lib" That for my understanding is the only option to make scons work ?
And some suggestions how to modify scons.bat in case someone have more than one version installed in windows - in my computer I have 19 "python.exe" installed... :smiley: - ? "where" is a good utility to understand which python.exe is called first (https://stackoverflow.com/questions/195590/locating-a-file-on-the-path)

Thank you.

    Sorry if my post doesn't answer to that question but you can try to ask your question on stackoverflow. This forum don't have so many people and many of these are on Linux.

    I was stucked by that too, https://godotdevelopers.org/forum/discussion/18240/how-to-make-scons-work-on-windows#latest
    I missed the kind answer back then, but you can try that.
    Now I'm on Linux and Scons is installed through the Synaptic software. The switch to Linux was difficult, I admit, but now I'm happy.

    Thank you for your answer,
    My is not a question rather than a call for who is doing documentation to do it better.
    To be honest is not the first time that people have to duplicate information in internet. So at this point isn't better to have all information we need in one place instead be forced to dig and dig and dig so wasting time?

    Thank you.
