I was trying to download a Python wrapper called rawpy on my Windows machine. I used the command "pip install rawpy". I have already looked at many other SO threads but could find no solution. The exact error is :
IO Error: [Errno 2] No such file or directory:
By separate communication the OP said that the installed pip version is 7.1.0 and Python 2.7. The solution was to update pip to a version >= 8. The underlying issue is related to SOABI tag handling in Python 2, particularly when creating the binary wheels with pip >= 8 and trying to load them in pip < 8. pip 7 didn't identify the available binary wheels as compatible and instead downloaded the source distribution which then failed to install spectacularly.
