Anaconda Python Install

The installation of anaconda 64 bit on my windows laptop worked fine. But then all conda and pip commands came back with the fatal error:

Can't connect to HTTPS URL because the SSL module is not available.

I found lots of messages about this. This bug seems to bug users for a long time. Even though some of these reports are closed as "Resolved" by the developers, I encountered this problem just today. Here was my solution (from [1]):

I.e. two DLLs were in the wrong directory.

Immediately after this I noticed a second problem:

A third problem is that conda install sometimes takes forever.

All these problems are not unique to me. Using google, I see lots of other users having the same or similar problems.

I had hoped that this would be a bit less painful. This was a standard install on a standard windows machine. This really should not give all these problems.
