ccmasterkernal Python

We are currently on ContextCapture update 19 and have attempted to run the supplied cc_py_cmd.bat.  It failed, which may be caused by a security setting.  I have asked our I.T. support to look into this.  My question/comments:  Has anyone gotten ccmasterkernel- successfully installed into a conda virtual environment?  Conda is our virtual environment manager of choice, and we really do not want to go down the path of having multiple virtual environment managers.  Any tips or guidance would be appreciated.
