Installation on Windows: file does not exist


I am quite new in this area, which might be the reason for this question. I am unable to install Prodigy on Windows 10, using Python 3.7 and SpaCy 2.1.3. Using:

pip install prodigy-1.7.1-cp35.cp36.cp37-cp35m.cp36m.cp37m-win_amd64.whl

I get the following error:

Processing c:\users\marli\prodigy-1.7.1-cp35.cp36.cp37-cp35m.cp36m.cp37m-win_amd64.whl

WARNING: Requirement ‘prodigy-1.7.1-cp35.cp36.cp37-cp35m.cp36m.cp37m-win_amd64.whl’ looks like a filename, but the file does not exist
ERROR: Could not install packages due to an EnvironmentError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: ‘C:\Users\marli\prodigy-1.7.1-cp35.cp36.cp37-cp35m.cp36m.cp37m-win_amd64.whl’

I also tried tips from other discussions, like:


But I am still unable to install it. Please tell me if more information is needed. Any help would be highly appreciated :slight_smile:

Hi @Marlijn,

Could it be as simple as the file not being at the path you’re pointing it to? It looks to me like pip simply can’t find the file.

By the way, note that the current version of Prodigy doesn’t support spaCy v2.1 yet.
