Installing Numpy on 64bit Windows 7 with Python 2.7.3

Installing Numpy on 64bit Windows 7 with Python 2.7.3

Try the (unofficial) binaries in this site:

http://www.lfd.uci.edu/~gohlke/pythonlibs/#numpy

You can get the newest numpy x64 with or without Intel MKL libs for Python 2.7 or Python 3.

Assuming you have python 2.7 64bit on your computer and have downloaded numpy from here, follow the steps below (changing numpy‑1.9.2+mkl‑cp27‑none‑win_amd64.whl as appropriate).

  1. Download (by right click and save target) get-pip to local drive.
  2. At the command prompt, navigate to the directory containing get-pip.py and run

    python get-pip.py

    which creates files in C:Python27Scripts, including pip2, pip2.7 and pip.

  3. Copy the downloaded numpy‑1.9.2+mkl‑cp27‑none‑win_amd64.whl into the above directory (C:Python27Scripts)

  4. Still at the command prompt, navigate to the above directory and run:

    pip2.7.exe install numpy‑1.9.2+mkl‑cp27‑none‑win_amd64.whl

Installing Numpy on 64bit Windows 7 with Python 2.7.3

Download numpy-1.9.2+mkl-cp27-none-win32.whl from http://www.lfd.uci.edu/~gohlke/pythonlibs/#numpy .

Copy the file to C:Python27Scripts

Run cmd from the above location and type

pip install numpy-1.9.2+mkl-cp27-none-win32.whl

You will hopefully get the below output:

Processing c:python27scriptsnumpy-1.9.2+mkl-cp27-none-win32.whl
Installing collected packages: numpy
Successfully installed numpy-1.9.2

Hope that works for you.

EDIT 1
Adding @oneleggedmule s suggestion:

You can also run the following command in the cmd:

pip2.7 install numpy-1.9.2+mkl-cp27-none-win_amd64.whl

Basically, writing pip alone also works perfectly (as in the original answer). Writing the version 2.7 can also be done for the sake of clarity or specification.
