How to install pip3 on Windows?

I use python 2.7, 3.5.2 and 3.6. Normally pip3 is installed with python3.x. But …

The code:

where pip3

gives me:

INFO: Could not find files for the given pattern(s).

How can I fix this?

Answer

On Windows pip3 should be in the Scripts path of your Python installation:

C:pathtopythonScriptspip3

Use:

where python

to find out where your Python executable(s) is/are located. The result should look like this:

C:pathtopythonpython.exe

or:

C:pathtopythonpython3.exe

You can check if pip3 works with this absolute path:

C:pathtopythonScriptspip3

if yes, add C:pathtopythonScripts to your environmental variable PATH .
