[IPython-User] windows installer problem
Mon Sep 23 08:41:51 CDT 2013
I have a student who is using IPython for a project. He needs to use some
packages that aren't supported in Canopy Free and he has had some problems
with Anaconda. So, I suggested he try downloading and installing the
packages himself. He is running Windows; I am pretty sure it is Windows 7.
I wanted to do a test for him, so I booted my laptop into Windows and
uninstalled everything. I then installed Python 2.7.5 from the msi along
with the following packages:
and then I installed ipython-1.1.0.py2-win32.exe, which I downloaded from
The installer doesn't add anything to my windows start menu (I am running
Windows 7). There is not even an ipython folder in the start menu.
If I navigate to C:\Python27\Scripts and try to run ipython.exe, I get the
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:\Python27\Scripts\ipython-script.py", line 5, in <module>
from pkg_resources import load_entry_point
ImportError: No module named pkg_resources
Is there a way to get IPython to work in windows without Canopy or Anaconda?
