Added note about Windows issue with "pip install" (the original path has spaces in the installation folder so the command fails).

RTD doesn't support Windows (because of the symlinks logic)

Thanks for the submission!

We've had a few attempts at folks contributing documentation for RTD for Windows support, but as @stsewd mentions, we don't officially support Win* platforms at all. We should probably mention this somewhere in our documentation if we don't already.

Though this doc change is correct, I don't think we want notes on windows support at all in our documentation unless we officially support running on windows.

Closing this for now

I get it. I'm working on a project that's running into a similar issue about lack of link support. According to https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/aa365680(v=vs.85).aspx, "Symbolic links are available in NTFS starting with Windows Vista." You just can't get them on FAT32, which unfortunately most people use.
