Python Question

pip - unable to find vcvarsall.bat

From last week, I tried to solve this but couldn't fix this error. While, I tried to install, following error comes:

C:\Users\#######>pip install pyproj
Collecting pyproj
Using cached pyproj-1.9.5.1.tar.gz
Complete output from command python setup.py egg_info:
using bundled proj4..
Traceback (most recent call last):

File "C:\Users\H~1\AppData\Local\Temp\pip-build-e4o66o1z\pyproj\setup.py", line 72, in <module>

raise DistutilsPlatformError("Unable to find vcvarsall.bat")
distutils.errors.DistutilsPlatformError: Unable to find vcvarsall.bat

----------------------------------------
Command "python setup.py egg_info" failed with error code 1 in C:\Users\H~1\AppData\Local\Temp\pip-build-e4o66o1z\pyproj\


I couldn't proceed ahead without fixing this error. I have installed Microsoft Visual C++.

Answer

Installing some Python packages under Windows can be troublesome. You can find a precompiled package at

http://www.lfd.uci.edu/~gohlke/pythonlibs/#pyproj

Just download the .whl file that suits your Python version then install it using

pip install <filename>.whl
