Install numpy for windows-64-bit in python

hey friends,,,,

here is the solution of :

1)How to install numpy in python?

2) Traceback (most recent call last):
File “<pyshell#0>”, line 1, in <module>
import numpy
ImportError: No module named numpy


3) numpy installation in 64bit windows.

4) install numpy by command-line: pip install

4) install numpy by command-line: pip install

This is very easy steps to follow:

Step 1:

There is the folder called Python27 in your c: or where ever you have installed your python version.

if you open idle your version is shown on the top


Step 2:

Download the numpy’s version for your computer system

I have windows(Xp,7,8) 64 bit and python 2.7.X.  So for that

–> most important download in chrome not in IDM or any download manager. And if you download make sure that it has  “.whl” extension.

Step 3:

Open your command prompt: Administrator

Type command

C:\Users\KUSH> cd..

C:\Users> cd..

C:\> cd Python27\scripts

C:\Python27\Scripts> pip install D:\downloads\numpy-1.9.2+mkl-cp27-none-win_amd64.whl

There are four commands. First three are for going into directory of python. Fourth one is for installing numpy version.

If you are successfully installed this how you can check it. By importing lib into python idle.



Congrets”””” you are done…….

  1. hi i’m also using same features but I couldn’t find numpy‑1.9.2+mkl‑cp27‑none‑win_amd64.whl from the link which you provided. I have tried another versions but that will give an error which is “not a supported wheel for this platform” so can you please provide numpy‑1.9.2+mkl‑cp27‑none‑win_amd64.whl file.


    1. Sorry, for the problem.. but now i have updated. if you want particular version which i have mentioned than the link is updated you can directly download it. thank you


  2. from the link i downloaded “numpy-1.10.4+mkl-cp27-none-win_amd64.whl”…but i got a not supported wheel on this platform error…plz help im using windows 8.1 64 bit and python 2.7.11


    1. In windows 8.1 first check you are in administrator command prompt. Than apply this trick. may it should work.

      rename the file to numpy-1.10.4+mkl-cp27-none-win32.whl to install it.

      You can check what tags your pip tool accepts for installation by running:

      >import pip;

      In this case pip is incorrectly detecting your operating system to be 32-bits and the file you’re trying to install was win_amd64 in its filename.

      If you rename the file to numpy-1.10.4+mkl-cp27-none-win32.whl (which now contains the tags that are considered supported) then you can install the package. It’s a trick because the file is still built for 64-bits but this allows you to install the package as intended.

      If this does not helps than let me know…..


      1. i am trying to install numpy-1.10.4+vanilla-cp27-none-win_amd64 .whl . but it is not installing. i am using window 7 64 bit.


  3. I am rashi. I am using window7 64 bit. i am installing numpy-1.10.4+vanilla-cp27-none-win_amd64 .whl. but is showing error . plz help me in this regard.


    1. Update pip version of your windows platform and than try to again install it. The command to update will be shown in the error.


    1. ohh, thanks, actually this error i solved on my own after not finding any complete solution on net. So each and every step i know, And also put screenshot of execution which helps to understand the things.

      About ideal way of writing or presentation. i suggest you to have thorough knowledge of all the slides. First completely convince/understand yourself with your presentation, than you can convince others about your topic.
