I am trying to clone my python environment that comes with ArcGIS Pro (arcgispro-py3 located in C:\Program Files\ArcGIS\Pro\bin\Python\envs\arcgispro-py3) to a location I can access (I do not have administrative privileges). I followed these instructions from ESRI https://support.esri.com/en/technical-article/000020560 but gave a direct path name for the clone (C:\Users\me\AppData\Local\ESRI\conda\envs\arcgispro-py3_clone).
When I cloned arcgispro-py3, I did so within my Python Command prompt. The cloned environment shows up when I list out my environments in the Python Command prompt with
conda env list. However, when I do so from the Anaconda prompt, the environment is not shown (only base shows). I can, however, activate it using the path to the cloned environment. (Though oddly when I run
conda env list again from the cloned environment, it has no output.)
I had used this same workflow on a different computer previously and had no problems. My main question is why can I not see all of the environments with
conda env list? The only thing that I can think of is that I also installed Anaconda (even though conda comes with ArcGIS Pro). I don't know if that confused anything.
