Thanks, but I know how to drive a terminal ;)
Your hunch was basically correct though. I ran again with `python -v -m pip` (see with_pip_dir.txt), and see that python is attempting to import pip from my user directory (C:\Users\amc2\pip). This is an empty directory, except for an old pip log file from 2.7.
If I rename the directory to something unrelated, `python -m pip` just fails with:
C:\Python\Python35-32\python.exe: No module named pip.
So mystery 1 is solved.
I've definitely selected the pip option in the python installer. I also repaired the installation, with the pip option selected, and the error still remains. Where is pip supposed to be located on a win7 install?
