Unfortunately I'm not an expert in how Python works on Windows; I gather it is 
rather different an experience from my usual UNIX environment.

I would guess that the requests module is not installed in a place in your 
normal Python's sys.path, but because the current directory is normally a part 
of that, navigating to the Python install area makes the module findable.

You should be able to make it work anywhere with the right Python path setting.  
Hopefully a Windows person can assist with the specifics.
