C++ error when trying to install

error: Microsoft Visual C++ 14.0 is required. Get it with “Microsoft Visual C++ Build Tools”: https://visualstudio.microsoft.com/downloads/

hi all - trying to install but get an error that I need C++ 14.0 on my machine - I follow the link and install C++ but I then try and reinstall and still get an error (I’m in an environment in the terminal in Pycharm if that could be causing the issue?)

Hi @billlovell,
can you spell your install flow here? I would like to know the steps you followed to get to this error. This link may be relevant to this: https://www.scivision.dev/python-windows-visual-c-14-required/

Also, is cl.exe available in your terminal?

We generally suggest this flow to run Streamlit in Windows that uses Anaconda Navigator. The reason we do so is to limit the amount of “external” dependencies that may be required on Windows.
