Python Issues with OpenVino 2019.R1.1

I'm having issues finalizing my installation of Python 3.6.5 or later to activate my Openvino toolkit. 

The message says "unsupported version try 3.5 or 3.6" 

Originally, I installed 3.80b

 

This forum is horrible. I can't upload images to help move my support faster.

Lock this thread please. I've opened another for OV 2019 R3 and Cmake. Thanks!

Hi George,

Since the information is insufficient, I would recommend you to go through the steps given in 

1. OpenVINO Windows installation

2. OpenVINO Linux installation

The information is insufficient because I can't post images to get support. 

I appreciate the urls but they are ones I used to install the software in the first place.

I'm running Window 10 on HP Zbook Studio G4 w/32GB of RAM and Quadro Video Card.

You should install Python 3.6 (64-bit) and add it to the PATH environment variable:

set PATH=C:\Python36;%PATH%
python --version
<openvino>\bin\setupvars.bat

Maksim,

Are you saying that 3.6.5 is too new? Do I have to go back to an older version of Python? Once I hear back, then I'll do your instructions. 

Is the above the permanent environment variable settings also because these instructions say something else:

No, any version >=3.6 and <3.8 is OK, using 64-bit version is important.

No, it is not permanent and affects only current console session. It may not be needed if you selected corresponding option in Python installer. Just make sure you have correct Python executable by running "python --version".

I will be uninstalling this version of openvino and trying with an older version and removing the python and putting at least 3.7 on my machine. 

I'll post my results here shortly.

Everything failed today. This is the versions I used:

OpenVino 2019.R1.0.1

Python versions installed on my machine:

3.5.4

3.6.5

3.7.4

I had path added automatically to 3.7.4 but version was unsupported. 

I'm uninstalling everything (except VS2019)  and will try again after I hear more here.

Please check output of "python --version" command first.

2.7.1 is my version. See screenshot below:

Why would a lower version of python be on my machine? Is this from Microsoft? Why isn't the Python I'm installing showing up?

I think I may need to adjust the developer settings on Win10. This is the only thing I can figure is wrong except for maybe bugs.

I think this may have fixed the problems. When I done opening some gzip files, I'll reboot and try to install the python 3.7 again.

Just prepend python 3.x location to your PATH environment variable before running setupvars.bat. Like I wrote earlier:

set PATH=<directory-with-python.exe>;%PATH%
