C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\Shared\

path, and it's sub directory
scripts i also added to my
pip is in the
scripts subfolder of python.)

WARNING: You are using pip version 19.2.3, however version 20.1 is available. You should consider upgrading via the 'python -m pip install --upgrade pip' command.
So here is the upgrade command... again, need an
python -m pip install --upgrade pip
