How to install psycopg2 with “pip” on Python?
I'm using virtualenv and I need to install "psycopg2".
I have done the following:

pip install psycopg2

And I have the following messages:

Error: pg_config executable not found.
Please add the directory containing pg_config to the PATH
or specify the full executable path with the option:
python build_ext --pg-config /path/to/pg_config build ...
or with the pg_config option in 'setup.cfg'.
Command python egg_info failed with error code 1
Storing complete log in C:\Documents and Settings\anlopes\Application Data\pip\p
