By installing it successfully.Update 2: I can find 'Anaconda' in a box search but it is presented as a collection of files, no clear executable to run. How can I end up with an executable Anaconda, i.e., one I can click to open?
Which is telling you that it has not installed successfully.I am getting the error message : "Failed to Create Menus" towards the end of the download.
Stop using a virtual machine - your hardware isn't up to it, your host OS (Win 7 32 bit, correct?) isn't up to it and is not well supported, Win 7 as a guest OS is very resource hungry, VMWare is not as well supported (without payment) as VirtualBox, 32 bit versions of anything are not as well supported as 64 bit...What do you suggest?
This post does not make any sense. Python does not have any 'servers assigned to it'. You can run a Python script that listens on a specific port so that you can, for instance, run a web server, but you are not doing that are you? Why don't you just download and install the Anaconda bundle, accepting all the defaults, and it should create all the right entries in your path so that you can run whichever version of Python you want - and if you want both, see here.The thing is I installed two versions of Python, 2 and 3, and each has a local server assigned to it( At localhost).But I am getting error messages. I think the issue is that when I make a client request it is not clear which server will process it. Maybe I can change the ports listening. Or maybe I am off.
In your client OS I assume? My guess is that there are a whole load of updates and patches that need to be applied before this Win 7 install is stable. If you insist on going down this path, make sure you have fully updated it.Problem now is I can't even use the search box nor the start menu, as they are both disabled.
Thanks, will give that a try, though I am not familiar with Linux. I know this is a separate issue but can you suggest how to address the search box and start menu being disabled?Oh my bad, that is a much better bet for virtualisation. My other comments still stand though - if you want community support, use VirtualBox and a 64 bit Linux client OS (e.g. Ubuntu).
Thanks for your help and patience PBUK.In your client OS I assume? My guess is that there are a whole load of updates and patches that need to be applied before this Win 7 install is stable. If you insist on going down this path, make sure you have fully updated it.
Oh I see what you mean - yes the Jupyter front end defaults to port 8888, and you could have problems with Jupyter for Py 3.7 if your Windows path was pointing to Py 2.7. The instructions I linked to should sort that though.I meant Anaconda uses a local server, usually at local host 8888.
Thanks, would you suggest HyperV over VMware for a PC, to help with compatibility issues?If you want to access resources in your VM from yoru host then it needs to be on the same network. In your Vm network card settings make sure you select "Bridged mode." The default is to use "NAT" mode. Bridged mode will mean it's network is like another physical mavchine and you can then talk to it from your host.
I am not sure if you can change the network settings if you are using VMware Players as opposed to VMware Workstation.
BTW I can help with virtualisation issues, once the OS is installed then you need someone familiar with the application. If you are expecting a start menu item then they are just links to an executable file. If you look in the folder c:\program files\application name then yo should see a .exe file that you can run. You might need to change your windows explorer setings so that it displays the full name of the file before the file extentions will show up.
