Hello,

My name is David.

What is the name and version of the operating system to which you are installing the package?

Do any errors appear when you attempt the install?

I'm running WinPython-64bit-3.5.3.1Qt5 on Windows 10. Pandoc ships with WinPython, but I've also installed that separately. I used pip in the WinPython Command Prompt to install pandoc-fignos in the usual waypip install pandoc-fignosWhich gives the following error:C:\Users\ned\WinPython-64bit-3.5.3.1Qt5\scripts>pip install pandoc-fignos
Collecting pandoc-fignos
Using cached pandoc-fignos-0.21.1.tar.gz
Collecting pandoc-xnos>=0.9 (from pandoc-fignos)

Command "python setup.py egg_info" failed with error code 1 in C:\Users\ned\AppData\Local\Temp\pip-build-gviziktm\pandoc-attributes\Looking at it closer I assume something went wrong with installing pandoc-attributes? The same error occurs if I try to install only that package.
