Install Problem

download: matplotlib-1.4.2-cp32-none-win_amd64.whl [from Sourceforge]

my system: hp Pavilion 500-314 Desktop

AMD A8-7600 Accelerated Processor

Windows 8.1

Python 3.4.2 (on Win32)

PyCharm 4 Community Edition

In the Python Command Line window, I’ve tried most of the “install matplotlib” instructions, but continue to get “Syntax Error”.

Double-clicking on the downloaded matplotlib (.whl) file asks what I want to use to open the file.

I’m new to Python, and am a loss as to how to install “matplotlib”! Please Help !!

You'll probably have an easier time if you install one of the
"batteries included" Python distributions listed here -
http://www.scipy.org/install.html

Then you can get started without needing to learn how and where Python
packages are installed.

Cheers,
Scott

Well, one thing is that an installer with "cp32" in the filename is for Python 3.2. For Python 3.4 you need the one that says "cp34".
