Hello ESRI Team,


I’m trying to get ArcGIS API for Python locally installed on my workstation. My workstation config is as follows:


  • Windows 64-bit OS
  • Python 27 (which comes along with ArcGIS 10.5.1)


I used the command prompt to navigate to Scripts directory C:\Python27\ArcGIS10.5\Scripts>


pip install arcgis


. I’m getting below error:


C:\Python27\ArcGIS10.5\Scripts>pip install arcgis

Collecting arcgis

    Complete output from command python egg_info:

    running egg_info

    Running post-install...

    No handlers could be found for logger "root"

Command "python egg_info" failed with error code 1 in c:\users\meghan~1.kul\appdata\local\temp\pip-install-uzcrw5\arcgis\


FYI: I have updated my setup tools. My question is that ArcGIS API for Python not supported with Python 27?


My Best,
