If you encounter an error after install:

run: rtlsdr_scan_diag.py

if it says librtlsdr not found in path:
Copy rtlsdr.dll to c://pyhton2.7

If rtlsdr gives you a very short command window that closes and doesn't start, then probably module six isn't installed.
Download six-1.5.2.tar.gz from https://pypi.python.org/pypi/six
Unzip for example in the pythondirectory.
Open a command prompt
goto the directory where you extracted six.
run: python setup.py install
try running rtlsdr. If all went well it works.
