Hey there! I’ve installed Python 3.8 64-bit and Miniconda 3 64 bit. I selected to add a PATH during both installations, then attempted to install Jupyter through CMD. At the very end of the install it printed:
ImportError: DLL load failed while importing _win32sysloader: %1 is not a valid
When I try to launch Jupyter Notebook from CMD, it fails and prints:
Can anyone help me understand how to fix this? I can’t move forward with my course until I get it sorted, and I’m too new to this to troubleshoot on my own.
If you have this, try installing and running jupyter from there and let us know if it worked from there. You should see (base) in front of the prompt, which will indicate that your base conda environment is active. If you didn’t see that on your prompt last time, that may have been the issue.
Hmm…It looks like conda is trying to use two different versions of Python: the one installed in the miniconda3 folder and the one in the AppData\Roaming\Python\Python38 folder.
I’m not sure why this would happen, and I’ve never experienced it myself, but I think if you either remove the non-Miniconda python from your path or uninstall it, then you can try conda install jupyter and jupyter notebook from Anaconda Prompt and it should work in theory.
If you want to uninstall Python, you can just search for Python in the search bar and you should see an uninstall option:
