Path to Python
Posted on 2016-11-21
I'm trying to run python from the command line on Windows 7. To do this I did the following:
(1) Clicked on the start menu then right-clicked on Computer and chose "Properties"
(2) I then chose "Advanced System Settings" then clicked on the "Environment Variables" button
(3) I scrolled down under "System Variables" and clicked on "Path" and then clicked edit
The following was the path
Since python is installed on the C drive I appended that extra bit to the path so it now looks like this:
Then in the command line I typed in:
When I pressed enter, I got the following error:
'python' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.
Can anyone tell me what the error means and how I can set the path correctly so it will run?
I'd really be grateful for any advice.
