Where is information about installed version stored

Jump to solution

I have to install several versions of Python, including Intel Distribution for Python, for use by the users I support. I "separate" them by using modulefiles.

I just tried to install python3_pu3_2017.3.052, but the terminal-based installer is finding a different installation, and only allows a modification, rather than installing in a new location.

However, this existing installation is not on my PATH or PYTHONPATH. How does the installer find this existing installation?

Doing "which python3" gives "no python3" anywhere on my path. 

But running install.sh says "This product is already installed".

Hello David,

The installer creates a small data store of installation information in $HOME/intel. When the installer is run, it checks that data store to find existing installations of the product.

The "intelpython" log file can tell you where it was previously installed.
