I’m new to virtualenv (on windows). I’m trying to use pip (1.5) install a local wheel file, but it is failing.
The command is:
pip install --no-index -f C:/Users/<User>/Download openpyxl
In the pip.log, I can see where it finds the correct file, but then doesn’t try to install it:
Skipping link file:///C:/Users/<User>/Download/openpyxl-1.7.0-py2.py3-none-any.whl; unknown archive format: .whl
I have wheel (version 0.22) install globally as well as in the virtual environment. Any idea how I can get .whl to be a recognized format?
It appears wheel support is disabled.
Make sure that you have
setuptools version 0.8 or newer installed, and that the
use-wheel option is not set to
setuptools is easy enough if
pip is already working:
pip install --upgrade setuptools
but note that older
virtualenv versions can depend on older
setuptools versions; you’ll need to make sure that
virtualenv is also up to date.
