Windows 10 & Python RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to upgrade my Python from 2.7.1 to a newer version but no matter how many versions I install and reboot the old version remains. 

    1. How do I upgrade my python,

    2. Also, what exactly do the dev settings do in Windows 10? At first, I thought this was the problem (not enabled) but I still wasn't able to upgrade. 

    Thanks in advance.

  • Hope the following thread helps:

    Unable to install Python 3.5 on Windows 10

    When put into Developer Mode, Windows allows you to more easily test apps you’re developing.

    To access it, head to Settings > Update & Security > For Developers and select “Developer mode”.

  • I marked this as the answer but basically this is an adhoc/3rd party solution. I don't know if I'll actually use this. 

    Can I just unistall the Microsoft Python and replace it with my files?

  • I need a better solution for this. Windows will not update the Python version. Can I uninstalled this version and then try again without damaging anything?
