Error using Windows CMake configuration

Postby rwel59 » Wed Nov 07, 2018 1:49 pm

I've been trying to get espidf working in a windows environment for awhile. Had msys/mingw working but very very slow. I just found the docs for using CMake instead.

I followed the default install steps exactly as stated in the docs. When I got to the idf.py menuconfig step, I get the following error:
'Checking python dependencies...
pkg_resources cannot be imported probably because the pip package is not installed....

I ran 'pip --version' from command prompt and get: pip 18.0 from c:\python\lib\site-packages\pip (python 2.7)

Hi rwel59,

Is it possible there's a mismatch between the pip.exe and the python.exe which CMake is running? You can try "python -m pip --version" and see if there is any difference in output.

Are you still using an MSYS2 terminal, or are you using a different environment with/without IDF Tools installed?

Do you already have any other Python versions installed in Windows?

Angus,
sorry for delay, for some reason I'm not receiving notifications.

I ran python -m pip --version and got
pip 18.0 from c:\python\lib\site-packages\pip (python 2.7)

I am using windows command prompt. Have also tried powershell from within vscode.

I do not have any other version of python installed.

Thanks for the update. Can you please post the output of "python -V" and "pip list", as well?

never got any feedback on this and did not resolve. I moved to linux vs code to get things working.
