mysql-python install error: Cannot open include file ‘config-win.h’

I am trying to run pip install mysql-python connector but it keeps giving me an error “Cannot open include file: ‘config-win.h’“.

The installation works fine on my Mac and another Windows machine, but not this one. I have downloaded Visual Studio C++ and tried installing as both 32 bit and 64.

_mysql.c(42) : fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'config-win.h': No s
uch file or directory

error: command 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC\BIN\c
l.exe' failed with exit status 2
