File setup.py, line 16, in <module> exec(str(got)) File <string>, line 1944, in <module> File <string>, line 594, in __init__

to add modules to the PRTG integrated Python Interpreter they have to reside in the interpreter's site-packages directory. The same can be found at <PRTG Install Directory>\Python34\Lib\site-packages.
After adding the package there, you should be able to import the same in a script run by PRTG.
Best regards
