Since I'm sure there are conflicts between some packages as well as
completely broken packages, I suspect this isn't really possible or

And it won't solve your problem.  If you can't get numpy and pandas to
install, you may have troubles with "everything" also.

Are you sure you followed the instructions on the page you linked to in
your pandas install thread?  Seems like you typed "python" in
a python prompt instead of your operating system command prompt.  I
recall telling you about this before.  You download the file,
put it somewhere, like on your desktop, then open the command prompt
window, cd to that directory, and then run "python" from your
cmd.exe C: prompt.
