I'm struggling with running/importing 'numpy and arcpy' on pycharm, which points to python.exe in the Python 27 directory where ArcGIS 10.4 is installed. How else can i try importing the two modules as it gives the errors "ImportError: No module named arcpy" for both arcpy and numpy.

Thanks,
Charlie

Hi Charlie,

Are you using a 32-bit environment about PyCharm?

I'm not using PyCharm actually, I use PyScripter to debug ArcPy code. So I've installed a PyScripter 32-bit and nor 64-bits versions.

A trick to identify your 32 or 64 bit environment is to jump on Python Console. You must have :

Python 2.7.14 (v2.7.14:84471935ed, Sep 16 2017, 20:19:30) [MSC v.1500 32 bit (Intel)] on win32. ***

Regards,

Fred

Thanks Fred, it seemed to be running from another version of python that i had on the machine, 3.7 I'm now trying to fix that.

I regularly use PyCharm with ArcMap's and ArcGIS Pro's bundled Python interpreter.  In the settings, what do you have defined for the Project Interpreters?

Hi Joshua, my Project Interpreter points to "Drive:\Python27\ArcGIS10.4"

Is "Drive" literally what is says, or is it referring to C:, D:, or some other drive?

That is referring to whether it's C:, 😧 etc.

If you have control over your machine...

Spyder, IPython and the Jupyters are all distributed with the Anaconda distribution of Python and hence ArcGIS Pro
