Also tried pip install ‘kedro>=0.17.0’

I use Python only in Linux Docker containers.
Hope another Windows user can help.

Hello @yosty :slight_smile: Welcome to the Kedro Community!

It is awesome to have you here!

Before the installation, I want to remind you that we recommend the use of virtual envs, just to reinforce best practice. If you’re a newbie (as I am) this video series might help a bit understanding it :slight_smile:


  • Using pip, this blog post describes the Kedro installation on Windows quite neatly. Some good hints on troubleshooting.

  • And if you consider using conda (my personal prefered way to install Kedro on a Win machines) the steps on the docs will get you there.

And since we love to know more about our community! Come and say hello on the Hey, introduce yourself! page.

Let us know how you get on with it. :slight_smile:

What Python version are you using?

Not a fan of anaconda. Will not be installing it on my machines. Any help would be great on utilizing pip.

Hey @yosty, I’m a bit late tto the party here, I’ve seen this error several times before myself. Looks like your version of python is one too high for kedro currently. You can find the compatible python versions of any pypi package by checking pypi.

PyPi shows that you need 3.6, 3.7, or 3.8

Since you are not a big fan of conda you can use pyenv. I have not used it myself outside of CI where its just under the hood. Real Python has a great article on pyenv that you can follow to get one of the compatible versions of python installed.


Downloaded 3.8 and it worked. Thanks !
