Issues with downloading

@Ilin
 

So I am trying to download and use Dionysus. I use python 2.7 on Anaconda on Windows 8.1. However when I try to pip install I get the following error messages 

Failed Building wheel for dionysus.

and

Command "C:\Users\user\Anaconda3\python.exe -u -c "import setuptools, tokenize;_
_file__='c:\\users\\user\\appdata\\local\\temp\\pip-install-0qq54w\\dionysus\\se
tup.py';f=getattr(tokenize, 'open', open)(__file__);code=f.read().replace('\r\n'
, '\n');f.close();exec(compile(code, __file__, 'exec'))" install --record c:\use
rs\user\appdata\local\temp\pip-record-jli4zz\install-record.txt --single-version
-externally-managed --compile" failed with error code 1 in c:\users\user\appdata
\local\temp\pip-install-0qq54w\dionysus\

I have downloaded boost so I am not sure what the issue might be.

Thanks in advance for any help.

The issue of installing Dionysus on Windows has come up before, but unfortunately it doesn't have a good solution. One person succeeded using MinGW compiler, but I don't think anyone has replicated this effort. Unfortunately, I have no experience with Windows myself.

I suggest you look through the archives of this mailing list. https://groups.io/g/dionysus/messages

Sorry for the late reply,
Thank you for the response, I'll probably just end up using a virtual machine to set up a Linux environment.
