Following the installation instructions, I installed Python 3.5.1 (32-bit), downloaded the robotpy 2017.0.0 zipfile, unzipped it, and ran this command from that folder:

py -3 installer.py install-robotpy

It fails with this exception:

C:\Users\User\Desktop\robotpy-2017.0.0>py -3 installer.py install-robotpy
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "installer.py", line 1010, in <module>

    self.install_opkg(opkg_options)
  File "installer.py", line 798, in install_opkg

    return codecs.charmap_decode(input,self.errors,decoding_table)[0]
UnicodeDecodeError: 'charmap' codec can't decode byte 0x9d in position 7516: character maps to <undefined>

This is on Windows 10, on a PC that fomerly had last year's robotpy successfully installed under Python 3.4. I uninstalled that before doing the above.

Stupid Windows. Give me a minute, I'll take a look.

Sorry about that, I don't use Windows very often. I'm going to hold off to do a release until I resolve #243, but you can get the installer directly from git if you're impatient. There's also a fix required for pyfrc too, so I'll update that shortly.

That was fast. Thanks, Dustin, we'll give it a spin tomorrow.
