The binaries are compatible with the official CPython distribution on Windows =6.0.
Chances are they do not work with custom Python distributions included with Blender, Maya, Arc GIS, OSGeo4W, ABAQUS, Cygwin, Pythonxy, Canopy, EPD, Anaconda, Win Python etc.

This page provides 32- and 64-bit Windows binaries of many scientific open-source extension packages for the official CPython distribution of the Python programming language.
The files are unofficial (meaning: informal, unrecognized, personal, unsupported, no warranty, no liability, provided "as is") and made available for testing and evaluation purposes.
If downloads fail reload this page, enable Java Script, disable download managers, disable proxies, clear cache, and use Firefox. Most binaries are built from source code found on Py PI or in the projects public revision control systems.
Source code changes, if any, have been submitted to the project maintainers or are included in the packages.
Refer to the documentation of the individual packages for license restrictions and dependencies.
Use pip version 8 or newer to install the downloaded files. Many binaries depend on numpy-1.11+mkl and the Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 (x64, x86, and SP1 for CPython 2.6 and 2.7), Visual C++ 2010 (x64, x86, for CPython 3.3 and 3.4), or the Visual C++ 2015 (x64 and x86 for CPython 3.5) redistributable packages.
Install numpy+mkl before other packages that depend on it.
The files are provided "as is" without warranty or support of any kind.
