Windows with PsychoPy 1.85.4 as library
* for each package that you want to install type ''python pip install <pachage name>''
==Windows (Vista and later) with PsychoPy 1.85.4 as library==
If you already have Python 2.7 installed on your computer or if you want to use Python for other purposes as well, you are advised to install PsychoPy as library. This is substantially more work. Perhaps you would really prefer installing Linux on your system rather than doing this.
Doing this has become simpler with psychopy 1.85.3. Note that for the first two steps in the following instructions you need administrative privileges and for the third one it may be necessary. Chronological instructions:# (skip this step if you have Python 2.7 32 bit installed already and you want to keep it) Uninstall all versions of Python 2 that you installed previously. Use ''Programs and Features'' in the Control Panel. Also uninstall all Python packages that you see in ''Programs and Features''. Remove ''C:\Python27''. # Install the newest 32 bit version of Python 2.7. You can download it [ here]. If that does not work, go [ here] and choose the 32 bit installer (Windows x86 MSI Installer). During installation choose 'add python.exe to path'. It is the last option in the list and may not be visible without scrolling down.
# Install [ wxwidgets 2.8] If that does not work, go [ here] and choose wxPython2.8-win64-unicode- It is the ancient library used by PsychoPy for its IDE. It is essential that you do NOT install wxpython/wxwidgets from another source.
# Download this [ file] (right-click -&gt; save link as...) with all other requirements. Use Windows file Explorer to go to the folder where you downloaded it. Shift-right-click to the right of the files (make sure the window is wide enough). Choose 'Open command window here'. From a command line type: <br /><tt>pip install -r DEPS1853.txt</tt><br /> Enjoy watching, and see if there are any errors.
