pip install fails for pandas
Posted on 2014-01-21
I've successfully installed python packages using pip on windows 7 (64 bit) in the command shell. However, I tried to install pandas but get the following error:
distutils.errors.DistutilsError: Setup script exited with error: Unable to find vcvarsall.bat
I remember having this problem in the last few years some time, but I don't remember the solution. I think the issue is that I just installed Matlab, which installed a version of MS Visual C++ redistributable. I now have version 2005, 2008, 2010 and 2012 (32 and 64 bit versions of all but 2005).
Somehow I think vc++ is causing an issue.
Anyone know a solution?
