Python Installation

Hi everyone,

We have noticed that a lot of people are having problems in running the Python Scripts. Here’s a basic tutorial to get python up and running on your system.

  1. To Check if Python is installed, type the following command on your Command Prompt or Terminal,
    python --version
    You will receive an output which tells the installed version of python like,
    ubuntu@ubuntu-xenial:~$ python --version
    Python 2.7.12
    For Windows Users,
    C:\Users\user>python --version
    Python 2.7.12

  2. If you receive this, Congratulations! Python is already installed on your system and you don’t have to proceed any further. Else, if you get an error message, then follow the steps below.

  3. If you are using Windows OS, You can download the python installer from here for windows OS,

  4. Download and run the required version for your use. Python 2.7.13 is widespread.
