Dear Christoph,
I have successfully installed Kwant 1.0.4 on Windows 7 32 bit.
I however do not understand what you meant by "wildcard". I just ran the python3 -c "import pip, glob; pip.main(['install', '--no-deps'] + glob.glob('*.whl'))"   line in command prompt, and received the message that "You must give atleast one requirement to install".
By the way I have python 2.7.9. So I just used "python" and not "python3". I don't know if I could be of any help in this case.

I just had the idea that the lack of wildcard support in the default Windows shell could be worked-around using Python's own means.  Could someone who has access to a Windows machine please try whether the Windows installation instructions [1] work when the command

pip3 install --no-deps *.whl

is replaced by

python3 -c "import pip, glob; pip.main(['install', '--no-deps'] + glob.glob('*.whl'))"
