I made a comment on an existing topic, but I figured that it was probably better to ask this as its own question.
I installed ArcGIS Pro 2.0 yesterday. When trying to launch the Python CLI, it states in angry red letters, "Failed to initialize Python Interpreter."
I am on Windows 7 x64. ArcGIS Pro 2 was installed to:
Prior to this, the Python that comes with ArcMap 10.5 was my system python.
I also do open-source GIS development on this workstation. Here is what my environment variables (user) look like. I've tried adding some things into the PYTHONPATH variable to see if I can't make it work - so this is for testing purposes only.
Obviously there are some path issues. When I fire up a Windows CLI I do get into the arcgispro-py3 python instance, but I feel I'm "doing it wrong."
When I type in "conda" I get the errors:
File "conda\cli\main.py", line 222, in <module>
File "conda\cli\main.py", line 185, in pre
File "conda\base\context.py", line 274, in envs_dirs
File "conda\base\context.py", line 270, in root_writable
File "conda\gateways\disk\test.py", line 66, in prefix_is_writable
conda.CondaError: Unable to determine if prefix 'C:\ArcGISPro\bin\Python' is writable.
Since nothing is IN C:\ArcGISPro\bin\Python (that's not where ArcGIS Pro was installed), I removed the path. Now it says,
conda.CondaError: Unable to determine if prefix 'C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\Temp\1\[directory name changes each time]' is writable. Failed to execute script main
So, the problem is twofold:
1. I cannot get at a Python CLI in the Pro interface.
2. I cannot 'conda' anything from CLI.
Any help appreciated! Please no voodoo suggestions like "just uninstall everything and run a registry cleaner" because I am not an administrator on this workstation.
