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.
