(2) Used the following command (assuming default installation paths) in 
a standard command window to run it in the directory containing 

         C:\Python27\python.exe "C:\Program Files 
(x86)\Lilypond\usr\bin\musicxml2ly.py" --nd --nrp --npl --nsd 
--no-beaming --language=english MyMusicFile.xml"

Lilypond for my usage!
