Hi developers~

On the OSGeo4W Shell by windows version QGIS 2.14, 2.16, 2.18,
the pip and easy_install command is not work, then I can't install additional Python modules.

After execute OSGeo4W Shell with Administrator ortho, type 'pip' on command line.
I can see error message like below.

Fatal error in launcher: Unable to create process using '"'

For repair pip error, I type command like below.

python -m pip install --upgrade pip

After this command re type 'pip' command, then pip command work well.

For repair easy_install, I type command like below.

pip install --upgrade setuptools

In conclusion, please update pip and setuptools models in Windows QGIS Packag.
