We've been recommending Anaconda for Mac and Windows for our third-party
kernel, and it seems to work well. We also have a small wrapper that
launches ipython.

Do they install "ipython[all]"? Perhaps they are not getting the zmq

Does "ipython notebook" work fine for those users? If so, and your kernel
profile still fails, then perhaps it is a path issue. I think I have seen
that sometimes a user might have to restart their terminal program to get
updated paths.
