Hi, I'm trying to use Pycharm, as IDE for python, but it seemd that the function arcpy.env is missing from __init_.PY...

I'm using C:\Python27\ArcGISx6410.5 interpreter.

When I try to run it inside PyCharm I get :

C:\Python27\ArcGISx6410.5\python.exe U:/Prog/PYScript/Geosoft2ArcGIS.py
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "U:/Prog/PYScript/Geosoft2ArcGIS.py", line 12, in <module>
import arcpy
File "c:\arcgis\desktop10.7\ArcPy\arcpy\__init__.py", line 22, in <module>
from arcpy.geoprocessing import gp
ImportError: cannot import name gp

it is there, 

from arcpy.geoprocessing import gp

dir(gp)
['__class__', '__delattr__', '__dict__', '__dir__', '__doc__', '__eq__', '__format__', '__ge__', '__getattr__', '__getattribute__', '__gt__', '__hash__', '__init__', '__init_subclass_.... snip ...

can you do a basic... import arcpy ..., if not then your environment isn't installed properly or you are using the wrong python and not the one distributed with Arc*

nothing showing in your response,  so did the simple 

import arcpy

work or did it fail too?

I've repaired ArcGIS

In Pycharm the interpreter is : I've attached a screen capture.

C:\Python27\ArcGISx6410.5\python.exe

After running this is what shows :

PyDev console: starting.

Let's try again

import Arcpy

is wrong... use lowercase for 'arcpy'.

Also, whats up with the 7 jpg files every time you post.

Hi Dan, sorry about the capital A in Arcpy, I'm used to vba, no need to worry about leter cases !

I've corrected it and it't back to my gp problem

When I run this code  :

import arcpy

I get :

raceback (most recent call last):

You have to point pycharm to use the pythonw.exe (or python.exe) that is in the same path as arcpy. "c:\arcgis\desktop10.7\ArcPy\....

somewhere in that path, however, remembering back to the arcmap days, I thought python was installed in a c:\python\arcmapxxx\ path???

ArcGIS Pro cleans this all up.

In any event, you have to locate the 'arcpy' folder, backtrack to find the python.exe file in that path and set pycharm to use it and not another python, which I suspect you have installed somewhere.

If you need 64 bit, you should also switch to Pro if possible, since there are a number of issues with the background geoprocessing and separate python install that is required.

Good luck

Dan you are correct. ArcMap's default install path ( At least on my machine ) is:

C:\Python27\ArcGIS10.5\python.exe

For Pro, the path to python for my machine is:

C:\Program Files\ArcGIS\Pro\bin\Python\envs\arcgispro-py3\python.exe

Yves,  have you tried a full uninstall and reinstall of arcmap?

Hi Dan, 

I've removed the Python option (modify the ArcMap installation), then add it again.

It's now saved in C:\Python27\ArcGIS10.7, I've tried both the Python and Pythonw

sys.path.extend(['U:\\Prog\\PYScript', 'C:/Python27/ArcGIS10.7'])
