Why can't I get openpyxl installed? When I tried: c:\python27\arcgis10.1\python setup.py install Traceback (most recent call last): File "setup.py", line 22, in <module> from setuptools import setup, Extension, find_packages ImportError: No module named setuptools.
So it looks like setuptools is needed by setup.py, either can't find it in path or not installed.
When I tried to install setuptools 0.9.7 I got another error: Downloading https://pypi.python.org/packages/source/s/setuptools/setuptools-0.9.7.tar.gz Extracting in c:\users\paul\appdata\local\temp\tmptm3fqf Now working in c:\users\paul\appdata\local\temp\tmptm3fqf\setuptools-0.9.7 Installing Setuptools Something went wrong during the installation. See the error message above.
Traceback (most recent call last): File "C:\Users\Paul\Documents\pyscripts\ez_setup.py", line 264, in <module> sys.exit(main()) SystemExit: 2
ArcGIS installs a 32 bit version of Python down in this folder c:\python27\arcgis10.1 and insists on a 32 bit version even on a 64 bit PC like mine.
