 python pip - V points to old version of python
Dear Python Experts,

When I run pip -V in my virtual environment I read:

(env_python36) C:\Users\myuser\Downloads\iwt_django36\iwt_django\iwt_django\env
_python36>pip -V
pip 7.1.2 from c:\program files\python35\lib\site-packages (python 3.5)

I use Windows 10 and have installed Python 3.6 in

How can I point to the new version of Python?
When you installed python 3.6 there was an option to update environment path.
In my opinion, the option should be the other way around, asking if you would like to forgo
updating environment.

The safest way to correct this is to reinstall. see:
If you are comfortable with changing environmental variables, you can change the path (just change the 3.5 path to 3.6). If you don't
know how to do this, don't try, you could mess up your whole system.

If you're only concerned about pip, use pip install --upgrade pip from the command prompt.

If it ain't broke, I just haven't gotten to it yet.
OS: Windows 10, openSuse 42.3, freeBSD 11, Raspian "Stretch"
Python 3.6.5, IDE: PyCharm 2018 Community Edition
Many thanks for the replies.
@ [b]Larz60+[/b] , how do I change the environmental variable, I could not find one that refers to python_home or anything.

Good idea, but my network does not allow a download. I would need to find the wheel.
you should be able to do identify which python version via
py -3.6 -m pip install requests
py -3.5 -m pip install requests

or you can call direct path to that python versions pip
/path/to/python.exe -m pip install request

Here is a step by step process of installing python with pip and path
