The command, which is suggested on Kwant webpage pip3 install --no-deps *.whl generates (python 3.4 and win7) the following error message: Requirement '*.whl' looks like a filename, but the file does not exist *.whl is not a valid filename. Are there any other possibilities to install a bunch of packages with a single command on Windows?
Jerzy, thanks for letting us know about this.
I wrote the installation instructions without access to a Windows machine, so I couldn't test them on that platform. Since the installation instructions for Numpy  mention that wildcards work with pip under Windows, I just took that over, hoping for the best.
I had my doubts though: I believe that the Windows command line still does not handle wildcards by itself (powershell does), so wildcards in Windows would require special support in pip. Now that you have tested this, I will fix the installation instructions.
Other then using a more powerful alternative shell, I do not think that there is an easy way to solve the problem. Please do let us know if you happen to find one...
Could you confirm that installation from wheels with pip works under windows either with a single wheel file name per pip invocation, or with all of them in one?
