I have a new installation of ArcGIS Pro 2.6 on a Windows 10 computer. I have successfully cloned Python because I want to install third-party packages to this cloned environment and still use arcpy.

I have added this new Python installation to the Path variables in Windows and I can confirm in a Windows command prompt that the newly cloned Anaconda Python is the default Python version.

I would like to install third-party libraries. For example, simplekml . On a normal Python installation this would be easy with pip install simplekmlcommand. Or in this case I would think conda install simplekml. When I try conda install simplekml I get the following error.

How do I configure my computer to allow me to install third-party packages to this cloned Python version?

Since you're on Windows 10, search for "Python Command Prompt". This will open a window with the current default ArcGIS Pro python environment activated. Pip and other python modules should work normally, as well as conda.

  • Thanks, @Whiskers. That worked as described. – GBG Nov 17 '20 at 4:42
