Python Question

trying to install pycuda, getting zip error?

windows 10, python 2.7 64 bit

hello, following a guide to this step :

pip install pipwin
pipwin install pycuda

gives me those options

Package `pycuda` found in cache
Choose version to download.

[0] : 2014.1+cuda6514
[1] : 2015.1.3+cuda7518

no matter what i choose , i get the following error(last line):

File "c:\users\skpok\anaconda2\lib\", line 811, in _RealGetContents
raise BadZipfile, "File is not a zip file"
BadZipfile: File is not a zip file

Anyone knows this mistake?

pip install "pycuda-2015.1.3+cuda7518-cp27-none-win32.whl"

It would be OK.
