Please see github ticket.

Using conda installed with ArGIS Pro 1.4. I do not have anaconda installed (I didn't think I needed it) see ESRI Docs.

PS C:\Users\zneumann> conda update conda Fetching package metadata: ...... Solving package specifications: .........  # All requested packages already installed. # packages in environment at C:\Users\zneumann\AppData\Local\Programs\ArcGIS\Pro\bin\Python: # conda                     4.0.11                   py35_0

How do I update to latest version of conda? I'm getting a numpy unicode escape error which apparently has been resolved in newer versions of conda.

Thank you.

Why don't you update to 1.4.1 to see if it goes away... The package manager that is builtin to Pro is a better way of managing your packages

How would I update conda? Or resolve my issue with the numpy unicode escape error when I try to import numpy? Looks like I have an old version of conda that didn't accurately escape backslashes (see github ticket). Btw, I haven't done much as far as install or managing packages (didn't want to muck up ESRI's installation), maybe I should reinstall/repair the download? I may have accidently installed the arcgis API twice, though once through the package manager and once through command line. I don't know if that's an issue.

I find the error message strange then, since I use numpy all the time without issue.  Perhaps the root cause lies elsewhere.

I failed to read the ArcGIS Pro documentation and jumped straight into the API documentation. I never ran proenv and was probably doing things in a strange way. I fixed my issue and all is ok. Thanks!
