Installing Anaconda3-2022.05-Windows-x86_64 on a home computer running Win7 (have r/w access to all folders). The installer reported “Failed to create menus”, so I looked at the details and found a bunch of “Error Loading Python DLL” messages.
- installing “for all users” as well as “myself” (I’m the only user of this computer)
- installing using “Run as Administrator”.
- pruning bad entries in PATH
- installing in the default location as well as onto my D: drive (I prefer to keep C for just OS)
Saw a bunch of suggestions for the same problem on Stack Overflow. Some seemed ridiculous. None worked.
I confirmed that the installer created the folder C:\Users\p\AppData\Local\Temp\nsnE30E.tmp, but did not create the folders C:\Users\p\AppData\Local\Temp_MEI*.
I saw one other message like this one on the forum, but the only suggestion was “Contact your admin”. This is my home computer, so I’m the admin.
I’m still not 100% sure if Anaconda installed correctly, modulo the system menus. I can recreate menus by hand, no problem, but obviously, that’s pointless if Anaconda itself didn’t install correctly. Where is the anaconda navigator executable located?
