Installed pronterface but still errors

Hi, sorry if this question is basic but it's really giving me fits.

I installed Pronterface and spent a couple days getting errors cleaned up. I initially posted for help on the wrong forum category.

At first I didn't have numpy installed but I worked through that. One error after another I got solved but I'm stuck with the following when starting pronterface.py (by the way, the program appears to start just fine, I just have this message in the command prompt):

WARNING:root:Memory-efficient GCoder implementation unavailable: No module named gcoder_line
WARNING:root:psutil unavailable, could not import power utils:No module named psutil

I followed the steps in the readme (https://github.com/kliment/Printrun#cython-based-g-code-parser) and installed Cython and then tried running "python setup.py build_ext --inplace." When I do this, I get the following error:

WARNING:root:Memory-efficient GCoder implementation unavailable: No module named gcoder_line
running build_ext
building 'printrun.gcoder_line' extension
error: Unable to find vcvarsall.bat

I installed Microsoft Visual C++ Compiler for Python 2.7 to try and resolve the missing vcvarsall.bat

I'm using Python 2.7 and Windows 10

So here is where I'm stuck. I'm very new to this but I'm mostly finished with my first 3D printer and am trying to sort the software out. Is it worth working through this to use printrun or would another program be better?

Thanks for any help!
