I wanted to be able to use the python "uncertainties" package in the sage notebooks. I have sage installed on windows. The sage terminal said pip and easy_install did not have necessary permissions. In fact, the sage terminal itself did not have write access to the packages folder.

How do I install packages like 'uncertainties'?

Currently the only way to install additional packages is to run the Sage Console as administrator (Sage is installed into the global C:\Program Files by default so anything that modifies those files must be run as Administrator). In the future there will be a release that allows user-specific installs.
