Windows 7. My python path reads:


The end of my user path reads exactly the same thing.

Yet, when I try to install libraries - for example, the requests library:

python setup.py install

I get:

C:\Python27\ArcGISx6410.2 not found

I don't understand. I uninstalled ArcGIS 10.2, have removed all current user registry keys (I don't have full admin privileges), and my path variables don't reference the 10.2 installation at all.

When I bring up the python console in ArcMap and then type "import requests" it says "No module named requests."

What I need is to configure my command line installs to by default go into C:\Python27\ArcGISx6410.4 for accessibility within Spyder,

and use the --prefix install option to send them to C:\Python27\ArcGIS10.4 to access the same libraries from within ArcMap, which confusingly only uses 32 bit in foreground.
