Install error in win10


I have just purchased Prodigy license and trying to install it on my win10.

But, I got this error when I install Prodigy using pip on cmd window.

I also tried it on cmd administration window but the error is still same.

Is this a known issue?

Installing collected packages: msgpack-python, peewee, msgpack-numpy
Found existing installation: msgpack-python 0.5.6
Uninstalling msgpack-python-0.5.6:

Could not install packages due to an EnvironmentError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: ‘c:\users\great\appdata\local\enthought\canopy\edm\envs\user\Lib\site-packages\msgpack\_packer.cp35-win_amd64.pyd’
Consider using the --user option or check the permissions.

Hmm, this sounds like a more general pip / permissions thing. Did you try running the command with the --user flag set, and if so, what happened?

pip install prodigy-1.5.0-cp35.cp36-cp35m.cp36m-win_amd64.whl --user

If you’re not doing so already, you might also want to use a virtual environment. This will install the library and its dependencies in your working directory:

python -m pip install -U venv
venv .env
pip install prodigy-1.5.0-cp35.cp36-cp35m.cp36m-win_amd64.whl


The first solution you gave solved the issue.
