Problem with populate script

I am trying to follow the tutorial at
I am stuck in section 5.8 where it shows how to create a script to populate the database.
I created a script called "" as shown (except I added brackets for the Python 3 print statements),
and saved it in the root directory for my project.
But when I run the script I get an error:

(landy) C:\landy\tango>
Starting Rango population script...
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\landy\tango\", line 59, in <module>
    from rango.models import Category, Page
  File "C:\landy\tango\rango\", line 1, in <module>
    from django.db import models
ImportError: No module named 'django.db'

I tried placing the script in C:\landy\tango\tango and C:\landy\tango\rango directories but I get similar errors.

Is it a better approach to make the populate script into a manage command?
Or should I be using fixtures?
