I just tried this actually on Windows and must say that I cannot reproduce it:

Congratulations! You successfully installed Jython 2.7.1b3 to directory D:\workspace\linux\Jython\installer_test\2.7.1.

Then I tried to install some random package, e.g. pathlib:

D:\workspace\linux\Jython\installer_test\2.7.1>bin\pip install pathlib
Collecting pathlib
  Using cached pathlib-1.0.1.tar.gz
Installing collected packages: pathlib
  Running install for pathlib ... [?25ldone
[?25hSuccessfully installed pathlib-1.0.1

Despite from the font/codepage/whatever display issues it works well for me (Windows 10, Java 8 current Jython trunk version).

So could you please try it with current versions? Note the versions reported for pip and setuptools, i.e. pip-9.0.1 setuptools-28.8.0.

Then, if pip installation of some package fails, please describe the steps in detail; maybe it is a separate issue...

E.g. scandir setup fails via pip, because it tries to build a C-extension. Actually scandir itself is workable, becuase it has fallbacks for missing C-extension. I'going to file that in a separate issue however.

So it would be good to get an update about the state and validness of this issue, also given that it is marked urgent and everything.
