I cannot install tensorflow

I’m reaching the end of the chatbot course (after several months, I am doing things too slow for my tastes) and I need to install tensorflow and the other modules for the project. But when I went to the tensorflow site (as linked in the article) and followed the instructions, I am getting this error message.

ERROR: Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement tensorflow (from versions: none)
ERROR: No matching distribution found for tensorflow

I am installing it natively in the command prompt and in the venv virtual environment. The command I used is pip install --upgrade tensorflow, just as the instructions said. My Python is up-to-date and so is my pip. I don’t know why I am getting this error message.

OK I think I figured it out. It’s because my cmd is using the 32-bit version of python. Not the 64 bit. This is weird because I also installed the 64 bit…

Hi,

 python -m pip install tensorflow
Defaulting to user installation because normal site-packages is not writeable
ERROR: Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement tensorflow (from versions: none)

Try this solution:

pip install https://storage.googleapis.com/tensorflow/mac/cpu/tensorflow-1.8.0-py3-none-any.whl

Thanks. I had that figured out. I hope I installed all required stuff for offline coding. This part I found to be the most daunting of all at the moment. I know it sounds weird but I honestly feel like this is a massive undertaking for me. After doing the course I feel like I need to review so much again in order to do it from scratch, but I really hope I can pull this off.

Would installing all these through the cmd make it available for IDEs like atom? I’m asking because while I finished the course a month ago, I’m only getting started on the project right now. I’ve been busy, and anxious…
