I want to install numpy using
pip install numpy command but i get follwing error:
RuntimeError: Broken toolchain: cannot link a simple C program
I’m using windows 7 32bit, python 2.7.9, pip 6.1.1 and some MSVC compiler. I think it uses compiler from Visual C++ 2010 Express, but actually I’m not sure which one because I have several visual studio installations.
I know that there are prebuilt packages for windows but I want to figure out if there is some way to do it just by typing
pip install numpy?
I think that there could be other packages which must be compiled before usage, so it’s not only about numpy. I want to solve the problem with my compiler so I could easily install any other similar package without necessity to search for prebuilt packages (and hope that there are some at all)
Installing extension modules can be an issue with pip. This is why conda exists. conda is an open-source BSD-licensed cross-platform package manager. It can easily install NumPy.
- Install Anaconda here
- Install Miniconda here and then go to a command-line and type
conda install numpy(make sure your PATH includes the location conda was installed to).
