I will be running my CNC Via Arduino UNO R3, so i have found out that it runs on GRBL and that i need to load Python and Pyserial and a graphic interface. Loaded Python 3.5.2, no problems, opened dos window typed Python, got the python >>> prompt, so far so good, downloaded/unzipped/copy/paste Pyserial into c:/python35/lib/site-packages/pyserial. at this point, at the dos prompt i type >>>python setup.py install. All i get is a syntax error.
I have included the dos script for comment
