I just installed Miniconda locally so I can do straight python programming with no interference from the ArcGIS Pro installer etc.
I installed it here:
and then ran:
conda install -c anaconda spyder
and created a short cut in the usual fashion:
Target: C:\Clones\Miniconda3\pythonw.exe "C:\Clones\Miniconda3\Scripts\spyder-script.py" Start in: C:\Clones\Miniconda3
But the short cut fails to open spyder. Nothing happens at all. I can run the new version of spyder by going to start and entering spyder there; works fine. Not sure why my shortcut fails...
Solved! Go to Solution.
Ha.. You saw this just before I went to delete it. I cheated, and at the start command I typed in spyder, and instead of running it, I selected 'open file location' and then copied the short cut from the install directory.
target: C:\Clones\Miniconda3\pythonw.exe C:\Clones\Miniconda3\cwp.py C:\Clones\Miniconda3 C:\Clones\Miniconda3\pythonw.exe C:\Clones\Miniconda3\Scripts\spyder-script.py start in:"C:\Users\Public\Documents\Python Scripts"
A little different than what I'm used to seeing... ( Navigator must not install with Miniconda, I can't seem to find it...)
