Need help! Failed to install GraphLab Create

User 4084 | 3/28/2016, 12:56:28 AM

Win 10 64-bit, Python 3.5.1

I tried to install GraphLab Create using the pip command, but it gave me an error:

Collecting graphlab-create>=1.8.5 (from GraphLab-Create-License==1.8.5) Downloading GraphLab-Create-1.8.5.tar.gz (46.1MB) 100% |████████████████████████████████| 46.1MB 2.8MB/s Complete output from command python egg_info: Traceback (most recent call last): File "<string>", line 1, in <module> File "C:\Users\ericw\AppData\Local\Temp\pip-build-2t77g00z\graphlab-create\", line 87 print "" ^ SyntaxError: Missing parentheses in call to 'print'

GraphLab Create can be installed on Python 2.7x. Python 3.5x is not yet supported but will be soon.

You can use Anaconda environments to easily install Python 2.7x or Python 3. Please see for more details.

even if I installed Miniconda with python 2.7, the installation of GraphLab Create still failed and the same error message popped up.

Hi @EWONG1086 ,

Is it possible that the pip from inside the conda environment is not the correct one? From inside the conda environment, could you type the command

which pip

This will give us more information.
