pip wheel not supported

Post by Daniel Wee » Sat 17 Dec 17 2016 11:11 pm

pip supports only certain types of wheels. You can find this out by going into python and running:-

import pip
pip.pep425tags.get_supported()

This will list the supported types. Look in the wheel name and see if the type is supported, eg. cp27. You should be able to rename the wheel to force pip to use the wheel.

An alternate issue may be to find out if the python is of the correct version (32-bit or 64-bit):-

import struct
struct.calcsize("P") * 8
