Installation of Python can be done in two ways if you wish to develop Python application with Visual Studio.
Installation Option 1
At the time installation of Visual Studio itself you can select “Python Tools for Visual Studio” under programming languages category in the installation menu
Installation Option 2
The alternate option is to directly download and install Python tools for Visual studio from Github and Python interpreter from python.org. Although Microsoft recommends to use Iron Python, I opted for official Python distribution for Windows. Python comes in two different version variants one in 2.X series and another in 3.X series. At this point of time, 2.X series is recommended for development as this is the widely used and available.
