I"m having trouble installing a Python package on my Windows machine, and would like to install it with Christoph Gohlke"s Window binaries. (Which, to my experience, alleviated much of the fuss for many other package installations). However, only .whl files are available.
But how do I install .whl files?
I just used the following which was quite simple. First open a console then cd to where you"ve downloaded your file like some-package.whl and use
pip install some-package.whl
Note: if pip.exe is not recognized, you may find it in the "Scripts" directory from where python has been installed. If pip is not installed, this page can help: How do I install pip on Windows?
Note: for clarification
If you copy the
*.whl file to your local drive (ex. C:some-dirsome-file.whl) use the following command line parameters --
pip install C:/some-dir/some-file.whl
First, make sure you have updated pip to enable wheel support:
pip install --upgrade pip
Then, to install from wheel, give it the directory where the wheel is downloaded. For example, to install
pip install --use-wheel --no-index --find-links=/where/its/downloaded package_name
