Installing Packages where some of Subspackages are already installed


I downloaded the beta today and am trying to install the thinkx module using pip (its found on pypi here:  It uses scipy, numpy, pandas, mathplotlib.  However the module uses scipy 0.18 and it  keeps wanting to upgrade the scipy version I have. I have the .py files for the submodules not installed. Is there any other way I can get around this?

My python is in PATH, and I followed instructions.  I have no trouble running tests for the included modules.

Hi Brittany,

This issue in the beta version seems to be solved in the latest available version.

I had to work with the thinkx module and the installation worked without issues in Intel Distribution for Python 2017 Update 2

The following are the results of installing thinkx with pip:
