Problem with Anaconda installation

  1. Feb 9, 2018 #1
    This is what comes up any time I start up Anaconda Prompt -
    Code (Python):
        \Xtralien was unexpected at this time.

    I am guessing it's because of a conflict with an old Xtralien python installation that I had and forgot about. I uninstalled that and reinstalled Anaconda but it hasn't resolved the problem.

    You have to remove the old xtralian references in the PATH. Its at the end of the PATH definition.

    I think there's system dialog where you can change it for the system or the user which is described below for Java as an example:

    You need to open the System Panel and go to advanced settings:
