Python Question

Can't open C:\Python27\Scripts\pip-scripts.py

What should I do? Reinstall pip? pip-scripts.py file, is not any more in the directory, I don't know what happened.
Can't install/uninstall other modules. How can I fix it? I am using windows 7.

Answer

What you can do:

  • Python versions python 2.7.9+ and python 3.4+ ship with pip. So you can choose any of them to avoid the hassle of getting pip and stuff. But...

  • I think you don't have any special reason to use python 2.7. So I suggest you remove python 2.7, download and install python 3.5 and start using it! As they say: Python 2.x is legacy, Python 3.x is the present and future of the language. Read more.

  • Then you can install/uninstall any package using pip, as pip is the default package manager in newer versions of python. Read pip docs.
