New submission from Thomas Shinnick:

Installed using python-3.6.1-amd64.exe then tried to pip install a package.  
Repeatedly had to manually intervene to open up permissions on python install 
subdirs, after getting these errors one at a time from pip:
  PermissionError: [WinError 5] Access is denied: 'c:\\program files\\python 
  PermissionError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: 'c:\\program files\\python 
  PermissionError: [WinError 5] Access is denied: 'c:\\program files\\python 
Gave up and set "full control" on \python 3.6\ dir and contents.

It seems permissions default to "read-only" subdirs which makes pip installs 
impossible.  Install and pip used under same userid and same session.  I 
thought I'd clicked yes to any question "install for all users".
