Embedded Python 3.5 "python setup.py egg_info" failed with error code 1

I am attempting to "pip install" PyAutoGUI ( among other modules ) and I am getting the following error :

Collecting pyautogui

This is being done on a Windows 10 Professional without admin rights ( hence the embedded method of using Python 3.5 ). I was able to pip install openpyxl without issue but when running the same command ( python -m pip install pyautogui ) I get the described error message and traceback found above. I've done clean extractions of the zip and found the same problem.

I searched through SO and only found questions that related to Mac environments and a single instance where the OS wasn't listed ( "python setup.py egg_info" failed with error code 1 ) which yielded no positive results ( actually ended up getting a different error message with the second suggested step...but...one issue at a time :P )

I've confirmed that the file in question (( 'C:\Users\myDir\Downloads\python-3.5.0-embed-win32\python35.zip\lib2to3\Grammar.txt' )) exists and even unzipped the directory just to be sure ( leaving the zip there as well intact to keep myself covered ). I attempted Easy_install and it yielded a similar set of messages and end result error ( not posting it to reduce clutter of this post but will provide on request ).

Any advice would be thoroughly appreciated. Thank you.

I faced the same problem while using 3.5.2 and 3.6.1 versions of the embedded python distribution zip for Windows. Though, with the MSI installer, this problem does not arise.

I suspect, this has something to do with the way the python3X.zip file is read for \lib2to3\Grammar.txt. Here is how I have resolved it :

  1. I have renamed the python35.zip file to something else (.zipp etc ..)
  2. I have created a folder "python.zip" inside my original extracted folder
  3. Made sure that "\lib2to3\Grammar.txt" is accessible within this folder.
  4. Ran "python -m pip install "
  5. Worked like a charm !

A hack probably, but, could not find a way around.

It seems, as you said, that you havent admin privileges.

Try to run for the current user, thus without admin privileges: pip install --user pyautogui

Embed Python 3.5 with tkinter support on Windows, Disclaimer. This answer does not purport to be the correct or best way to embed Python 3.5 with Tkinter support. The step-by-step format only reflects the fact that​  With the 3.5.0 release, Python.org has introduced a distribution billed as embeddable zip file. Unfortunately the zipped file comes without a help file (not even a readme). The download page on Python.org just lists it among the downloads. Apparently this is a portable Python distribution.

For me just unzipping the python36.zip to a folder python36.zip did the trick.

Comments
  • Does trying to install other modules cause a similar error on your machine? (For example, try pip install pymsgbox)
  • It yielded the same error. I am getting the feeling I will just have to wait for the admin team to take a look at it locally.
