Installation issue

Dear all,

I'm trying to install matplotlib on my pc (Windows 10). I got this error:

$ python buildall.py
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "buildall.py", line 58, in <module>
    main(options)
  File "buildall.py", line 11, in main
    utils.build_zlib()
  File
"C:\Users\laj\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python37\Lib\site-packages\matplotlib-winbuild\utils.py",
line 136, in build_zlib
    cmd.write(prepare_build_cmd(ZLIB_BUILD_CMD))
  File
"C:\Users\laj\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python37\Lib\site-packages\matplotlib-winbuild\utils.py",
line 63, in prepare_build_cmd
    raise RuntimeError('Microsoft VS {} required'.format('2010' if VS2010
else '2008'))
RuntimeError: Microsoft VS 2010 required

I already have "Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 redistributable" installed (I have
2008, 2010, 2012, 2013, 2017 installed). What shall I do?

Thank you very much!

This seems to be an issue with
https://github.com/jbmohler/matplotlib-winbuild. You might want to check
there first.

I have already followed all that instructions...But still it gaves me this
error and I can't understand what I'm doing wrong ??

What I believe Ben means is that since the matplotlib development team
doesn't maintain those scripts, this list isn't the best place for your
question (as odd as that may seem). My recommendation would be to the look
through the open issues at the matplitlib-winbuild repository and check if
someone having a similar issue has figured out a solution. If not, you
could create a new issue at the repository explaining your predicament.

If you are using conda it may also be worth looking at the recipe build
script and / or the installation.

Our official window install install instructions (
https://matplotlib.org/users/installing.html#build-windows ) point at
matplotlib-winbuild so I think this is our problem to either fix or own
complete install documentation in our docs.

I would suggest removing the link to mpl-winbuild (which appears to not
have been updated for 4 years) and state something to the effect of
- either use the built wheels/conda packages (I think this is what the OP
needs)
- or use conda to get libpng set up
- or set it up on your own.
Once libpng and a recent enough MSVC are present, building Matplotlib
oneself is "reasonably" straightforward.

Finally I uninstalled python and all downloaded packages and installed it
again, following different instructions. Now pip runs very fine and a
simple pip install matplotlib works!

Thank you for the support!
