Installing Numpy on Windows 7 / 8 with Python 2.7 (Unable to find vcvarsall.bat)

Installing Numpy is as easy as running the command below:

  • pip install numpy

However, If you don’t have a C/C++ compiler installed, you can get the following error while you are trying to install Numpy on Windows 7 or 8.1:

  • error: Microsoft Visual C++ 9.0 is required (Unable to find vcvarsall.bat)

Easiest way to install Numpy is using the (unofficial) binary packages from Christoph’s site.

It worked for me, it should also work for you..
