Is there any known limitation regarding installing the Eikon Python library using the pip command on a Windows 10 based PC? A team member is having trouble installing the "eikon" library with pip.
Turns out that the installation method of the Anaconda Python environment to "All Users" has an impact on whether pip installation succeeds or not. If installing to "This User" on Windows, eikon library installs correctly, but if you installed Anaconda for "All users", pip installation returns error.
If PIP is not in your environment variables, the PIP command is not recognized in the command line (CMD). There are many questions about it on StackOverflow. You can also navigate with CMD to the 'Scripts' folder your Python installation folder and try to run 'pip' from there. Nevertheless, you most likely will need to use PIP more often, so a reinstall (or manual adding of Python to System Environment Variables) is preferred...
It seems like pip was working okay for other popular packages so it seemed strange that only the eikon package would return errors. Nevertheless, thanks for the link to the StackOverflow page. That will come in handy.
