Requests module not installing
#1
Hello,
I am having trouble with installing the requests module. I am using python 2.17.12 and it keeps coming up with this error: could not find a version that satisfies the requirement install (from versions: ) no matching distribution found for install
I have tried executing this command, python -m pip install --users requests , in different directories and nothing is working. Also another error I have encountered is:
Error:
Traceback (most recent call last):   File "C:\Python27\lib\runpy.py", line 163, in _run_module_as_main     mod_name, _Error)   File "C:\Python27\lib\runpy.py", line 111, in _get_module_details     __import__(mod_name)  # Do not catch exceptions initializing package   File "C:\Python27\lib\site-packages\pip\__init__.py", line 21, in <module>     from pip._vendor.requests.packages.urllib3.exceptions import DependencyWarning ImportError: No module named requests.packages.urllib3.exceptions
I'd appreciate any help that I can get on this matter.
Thank you.

Why are you doing this?
Installation doc clear pip install requests.

Comes with pip pre -installed in Scripts folder.
It's okay first to upgrade pip then install Requests.
From cmd cd into Scripts folder.
Eg:
C:\>cd python27\scripts
C:\Python27\Scripts>pip install --upgrade pip
C:\Python27\Scripts>pip install requests

It says 'pip' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

You have to navigate(cd) into Scripts folder from cmd.
C:\>cd python27\scripts
Do know how to use command line(cmd) in Windows?

Yes. That is what I am currently using. I navigated to the Scripts folder using the cd command. Then I typed in pip install --upgrade pip , and that is when I got the error.

when you ran the python installer did you uncheck install pip options?
What is the directory listing of your python scripts?
Such as 
C:\Python27\Scripts
*Describe the environment in which it occurs.                                    *Describe the symptoms of your problem clearly.
*Describe the research you did to try and understand the problem.      *Describe the goal, not the step. 
*Use meaningful, specific subject headers                                          *Write in clear, grammatical, correctly-spelled language
*Describe the problem's symptoms, not your guesses                         *Describe your problem's symptoms in chronological order
*Describe the diagnostic steps you took to try and pin down the problem yourself.
*Describe any possibly relevant recent changes in your computer or software configuration. 
*Provide a way to reproduce the problem in a controlled environment.

I think that option is only in Python 3.5-->.
With 2.7.12 pip should be installed bye default.

Check that you are in Scripts folder one more time.
You can in File Explorer go and look in Scripts folder there should be a pip.exe file there.
You can also use "dir" from command line to list files in a folder.

Just run this code and it will tell what you have install

import pip
installed_packages = pip.get_installed_distributions()
installed_packages_list = sorted(["%s==%s" % (i.key, i.version)
     for i in installed_packages])
print(installed_packages_list)
