I downloaded (1 week ago) Anaconda Distribution “Anaconda3-2022.05-Windows-x86_64.exe” and tried to install on a PC ASUS model N76VZ, Intel Core i7-3630QM 64-bits CPU, MS-Windows 8.1.
After extracting files, installation stops at “Setting Base Environment” stage. Even worse: the screen freezes, cursor, mouse and keyboard stop. The only way to get out of this state is to restart the computer manually (by hitting power button >5s).
I’ve made several checks and tests trying to solve/understand what happens:
tried to remove all files and reinstall, by trying all installing options: “just me/all users”, chosen different locations for “anaconda3” folder, path variable yes/not, …
created a new user (admin and normal) on the PC and launched installation from this new user
restored Windows at a “clean” state (I did set it before starting anaconda installation)
tried to install Miniconda instead
nothing found in MS-Windows events (Windows Event Viewer)
All attempts fail : the PC always stucks at “Setting Base Environment” stage.
I was not able to find anything on the web about this trouble, nor on this forum. Maybe someone could tell me what happens and/or has a solution ?
Thank you in advance
