Virtual Environments in Python 3.5 on Windows

Earlier, I was trying to set up a Virtual Environment so I could go through this Flask Tutorial … it kept getting stuck w/ pip/setuptools/wheel during install … Apparently the reason is that Virtual Environment doesn’t like when your Python Files are in a directory with spaces.

Python 3.5 Default Installs to c:\program files\python 3.5 … Where as Python 2.7 very helpfully installs to c:\python27

I can’t imagine why they would have changed this, but hopefully you will find this helpful too!
