Breaking up several questions I asked here:

Issue #2: Seems like WinRos Sdk is not working with python, as ROS doesn't find my package.

I failed to find a workflow on using ROS with python on windows - the tutorials point only to using cpp modules.

Is it possible to run python ROS in Windows? What should I run to get ROS to find the package (assuming it's written in python)?

I did it with installing python x86_64 in hydro x64 on windows 8.1 using windows sdk 7.1 (before installing it you have to uninstall redistributables 2010 and reinstall afterwards).

I you really like to do cool Stuff witch ROS, you have to Switch to Linux. If you don't need visualisation (at least 3D stuff) you can use a Vitual-Box VM with linux. I changed today to to a Real Linux Dualboot Installation, because Gazebo was unusable with in Vitual-Box.
