Installation on Windows errored out with exit status 1

I'm getting an error when I attempt to install prodigy 1.9 on Windows 10 with Python 3.8. I couldn't find anything similar on the message board--sorry if it has been answered already and I missed the post.

The output is too long to post here, and I'm not sure what section where the error might be in. Let me know if you need to see anything additional.

Hi! The problem here seems to occur when installing spaCy, which is a dependency of Prodigy. Even though we provide wheels, it seems to not install Blis (a dependency of spaCy used for matrix multiplication) from a wheel and is trying to compile it instead. That fails, because your system doesn't seem to have a compiler set up.

Which version of Windows are you running and can you double-check that your Python installation is 64-bit? Your path says Python38-32, which might mean it's 32-bit? In that case, that would definitely be the problem and you want to use 64-bit Python.

I installed the 64 bit Python, and the output looks much different now. It looks like it was successful! Here's the final line of output. Does this look correct?

Also, I see this message:

Is it an issue that the wheel package was not installed, since it was then able to successfully install toolz, peewee, and starlette?

Thank you!

This looks good, yes :slightly_smiling_face: The most important thing is that everything runs. Maybe just try running python -m spacy info and python -m prodigy stats on the command line – if both of those run and produce stats, this means that both spaCy and Prodigy were installed correctly.

Yep, all good now! Thanks so much.
