Q: Issue with installing scipy (windows)

I tried to initially install scipy by running

pip install scipy
and got
error: no lapack/blas resources found
and so I downloaded anaconda for python 2.7. Once I installed anaconda, I once again ran
pip install scipy
and the issue had resolved, and it said
Requirement already satisfied (use --upgrade to upgrade): scipy in c:\users\owner\anaconda2\lib\site-packages
, however when I tried to import scipy in the python console, I got the error
No module named scipy
. I am on windows 10.

Answer

Anaconda python comes with its own package manager. The command is:

conda install scipy

In case you want to install it in a specific environment go for:

conda install -n myEnv scipy
