I recommend using virtual env on windows as this gives you a lot of control and will prevent any experiments you do in one project messing with another.
Install pip if you don't have it
pip install virtualenv
Make a directory somewhere where you want to store your virtual environments. These are like standalone Python.
It doesn't have to be called 'micro' but for illustration:
python -m venv micro
Notice the prompt change
Just as an example, launched IDLE (if that's your thing) with python so it picks up the virtualenv.
python -m idlelib.idle
We're trying to solve the last mile problem of time-series analysis.
