I have had to reinstall ArcGIS Pro 2.0 and have attempted to recreate an Anaconda environment, but am running into some problems. When I create a new environment from the initial ArcGIS Pro environment, I can install packages using pip, but then when I try to load them from within the cloned environment, the modules can't be found. Here are the steps I performed.
- Open Command Prompt as provided by ArcPro (not in the GUI)
conda create --clone old --name new
pip install package
python -c "import package"
This results in an error message. Within the new environment,
sys.executable returns the old environment. If I provide the hard path the python executable in the new environment, I can load the package. But this behavior doesn't seem right. I am assuming that when I try to open python within an Anaconda environment it should use the environment's python version.
