Problem installing ActiveState Python 3.5.4 on Windows 7 64bit

When I install ActiveState Python 3.5.4 on my Windows 7 (64bit) machine no shortcuts are created in Start Menu. I know that these shortcuts used to be created in earlier versions, and lack of them may point to some problem with the installation. Still, I have tried several times to uninstall and reinstall again and each time nothing was added to the Start Menu.

Does anyone know if this is an expected behaviour?

Thanks,

Tom

How to get the Active Python documentation search engine running?

I have installed Active Python 3.5 x64 on Windows 10 and XAMPP for Apache server.

In C:\xampp\apache\conf\extra\ i have created a file active-python-manual.conf with the content

    Alias /active-python-manual "C:/Python35/Doc/"
    <Directory "C:/Python35/Doc">
        AllowOverride AuthConfig
        Require local
    </Directory>

After an restart of Apache i can reach the Active Python documentation by typing http://localhost/active-python-manual/ in the browser.

Known Issue: Problem importing win32com.client

Known to appear in 3.5 and 3.6 ActivePythons, but could affect other versions as well.

Symptom: When running
import win32com.client
an error is reported.
(site-packages\win32com\gen_py\__init__.py does not exist)

Problem:
The win32com module is designed to create __init__.py and dicts.dat the first time it starts. If the files do not exist and the current user does not have adequate permissions to create the files, the error above will be reported.

Work-around:
The files only need to be created once. If an Admin ID with the correct permissions runs
import win32com.client

Can't install ActivePython 3.6 on Windows 10

Hi,

I'm trying to install ActivePython 3.6 on my Windows 10 machine for the first time. I'm running the installer "ActivePython-3.6.0.3600-win64-x64-401834.exe" with the default installation options.

The installer seems to run as expected. It runs for a minute or so and then displays a message "Completing the ActivePython 3.6.0 Build 3600 (64-bit) Setup Wizard." I then click the "finish" button and the installer exits.

old version

I have a software requirement for version 3.1 of active python -- does anyone know where I can

ActivePython 2 and ActivePython 3 for WinXP SP3 32bit and Win7 SP1 64bit

Hello,

I had no idea there were different ActiveState Pyhton typologies (i.e. FirstClass and "regular").

1) Where can I get the latest "regular" ActiveState Pyhton 2 for 32bit Windows XP SP3 and for 64bit Windows 7 SP1?
and
2) Where can I get the latest "regular" ActiveState Python 3 for 32bit Windows XP SP3 and for 64bit Windows 7 SP1?

Here
http://docs.activestate.com/activepython/2.7/get/windows/
and here
http://docs.activestate.com/activepython/3.6/get/windows/
I can read "ActivePython requires Windows XP, or later.".

Thank you!

ActivePython 2.7.13.2715 Windows .bat all broken

Just installed the lastest version of ActivePython on my Windows 10.
Can't use any off ipython, jupyter, ... out of the box from a cmd.
Please help me finding a global solution to my problem,
I only succeeded to "hack" the install.

Context:
--------

Fired a cmd.exe shell.

> ipython
Returns:
echo off
python.exe non module ipython found.

Same for almost every packages I tried.

First thing:
-----------
Please put an @ before "echo off" to avoid prompting => "@echo off"

Second thing:
------------
All .bat shortcuts seems to be broken.
