I am trying to set the Python IDLE 2.7.6 x64 to run the arcpy module from ArcGIS x64 bit geoprocessing (10.2.2).  I copied the file DTBGGP64.pth from C:\Python27\ArcGISx6410.2\Lib\site-packages to C:\Python27\Lib\site-packages that is written as:

C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcGIS\Desktop10.2\bin64
C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcGIS\Desktop10.2\arcpy
C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcGIS\Desktop10.2\ArcToolbox\Scripts

when I then open the python 2.7.6  x64 IDLE and run the following command : import Arcpy,  I get this error

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<pyshell#0>", line 1, in <module>
    import arcpy
  File "C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcGIS\Desktop10.2\arcpy\arcpy\", line 24, in <module>
    from arcpy.toolbox import *
  File "C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcGIS\Desktop10.2\arcpy\arcpy\", line 356, in <module>
    from management import Graph, GraphTemplate
  File "C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcGIS\Desktop10.2\arcpy\arcpy\", line 22, in <module>
    import _management
  File "C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcGIS\Desktop10.2\arcpy\arcpy\", line 14, in <module>
    import _graph
  File "C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcGIS\Desktop10.2\arcpy\arcpy\", line 27, in <module>
    import numpy
ImportError: No module named numpy

it seems to me that the 10.2.2 x64 bit python is pointing to the 32 bit python library.  I have tried substituting the code from:

c:\Program Files\ArcGIS\Desktop10.2.2\arcpy
c:\Program Files\ArcGIS\Desktop10.2.2\bin
c:\Program Files\ArcGIS\Desktop10.2.2\ArcToolbox\Scripts

I get the error that it cannot even find the arcpy module.
Any thought on how to solve this?  Thanks in advance!
