I just installed OpenVino on windows 10.

I installed all dependencies. Note that i *did* add the path to all users for all installations.

At first I installed Python 3.8 and got an error when trying to set environmental variables,

Unsupported Python bitness. Please install Python 3.5 or 3.6  (64-bit) from https://www.python.org/downloads

So I uninstalled Python 3.8. According to the requirements page, Python just has to be >3.5 (no mention of upper version limit).

On the python page they no longer have the installers for version 3.6. I installed version 3.7 and got the same error as above.

I also tried going to the next step, configuring the model optimizer, and that failed as well.

Hi Gabrie,

Can you confirm that you are installing the 64-bit version of Python? 

Please try installing Python 3.6.5 (64-bit) and add the location to the python path, as mentioned in the installation guide

You may check output of python --version command.

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Jaivin
