I'm having a problem when I try to install packages from https://conda.anaconda.org. When I try for example 'conda install --channel https://conda.anaconda.org/IOOS rtree', it shows the dependencies it is going to install, but when I accept, it gets stuck in 'Fetching packages ...' .I thought that the problem was that I am behind my company proxy, but when I check my proxy settings I get:
C:\Windows\system32>netsh.exe winhttp show proxy
Current WinHTTP proxy settings:
Direct access (no proxy server).
I faced similar problem with conda. Even though I had done appropriate settings in environment variables for my proxy servers, conda install hanged.
I used the netsh command that you used :
C:\Users\tauseef>netsh.exe winhttp show proxy Current WinHTTP proxy settings: Direct access (no proxy server).
I see it does not return a proxy server but indeed i know for sure that my system was behind a proxy server.
So, I created a .condarc file ( as mentioned here : how to create a .condarc file for Anaconda?) in my home directory on Windows7 ( C:\Users\tauseef) You can use the following command to create a very minimal looking .condarc file (see https://github.com/conda/conda/issues/1757):
conda config --add channels r
and I entered the following lines on .condarc file
# Proxy settings: http://[username]:[password]@[server]:[port] proxy_servers: http: http://ef.fake.company.com:8080 https: https://ef.fake.company.com:8080
Now I am able to install a package (say mingw) using
conda install mingw
