Installation on Windows


Windows support is experimental. We would love to get your feedback in the Windows channel on the Pyrocko Hive.

We provide binary PIP and Anaconda packages for the Windows platform for Python 3.6 - 3.9. If MSVC is installed, it is also possible to install Pyrocko from source.

From precompiled Anaconda packages

If you are using Anaconda under Windows, see Installation under Anaconda.

From precompiled PIP packages

If you want to use PIP to install Pyrocko under Windows, see Installation with pip.

From source

In this example installation, we assume that you are using Anaconda/Miniconda to manage your Python environment. Other setups may also be possible as long as you can run git, python, pip, and patch from your Windows command line and you have a C compiler installed.

  1. Install Build Tools for Visual Studio 2019. You don’t need the complete Visual Studio 2019. In Build tools, install C++ build tools and ensure the latest versions of MSVCv142 - VS 2019 C++ x64/x86 build tools and Windows 10 SDK are checked.

  2. On the Windows command line, run:

    git clone
    cd pyrocko
    conda install git setuptools m2-tar m2-gzip m2-patch
    conda install numpy scipy matplotlib pyqt pyyaml progressbar2 requests jinja2 nose
    python install

For instructions on how to install Pyrocko on other systems or if the installation with the above procedure fails, see System specific installation instructions or Detailed installation instructions.
