Let's say your Django project name is ToDoWoo

Once you setup your Django project, there will be two `ToDoWoo` folders - one inside the other (which is the parent folder).

For Python 3 - download and install Python 3 from https://www.python.org/downloads/windows/ - as of today, the latest version is 3.10.5.

(What I am having on my Windows 10 laptop is Python 3.8.7 so I'll be referencing the path to 3.8)

"Python 3 itself comes with venv for managing environments which we will use for this guide." - https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/4.0/howto/windows/

So no need to do `pip install venv`

By default python's path should be at C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python38

cd ToDoWoo
python -m venv project-env
python .\manage.py runserver

For Python 2 - download and install Python 2.7.16 from https://www.python.org/downloads/release/python-2716/

We need to install a virtual envornment module that support Python 2 - since `venv` is a Python 3 specific module we have to install `virtualenv`

Assuming the default location of C:\Python27 :

cd ToDoWoo
C:\Python27\python.exe -m pip install virtualenv
C:\Python27\python.exe -m virtualenv py2
python -m pip install Django==1.11.29
python .\manage.py runserver

Supporting both Python 2 and 3 in the same codebase was a common thing for several years.
