Python cannot install package with bad registry

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hi there,

I don’t know why Python cannot be found in the registry when I want to install a package. I have the version 2.6 of Python and the program is working just fine. Any solution ? Why I have this error when I want to install the package ?

Thank you !

Python cannot install package with bad registry


Normally, when installing a program that requires installing of pre-requisite apps, it is checked in the registry since all applications writes information to the registry during the installation. And if the information for the pre-requisite is not found then the wizard will alert you and then aborting the installation. If you are installing Pycairo and it requires Python 2.6 which is not found on the registry though you said it is already installed, then you need to reinstall it.

Your Python 2.6 might not be installed properly that’s why Pycairo can’t find it in the Windows registry. If you want to download the installer again, download Python 2.6. Once downloaded, uninstall Python if it is still installed then click Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, and then select Disk Cleanup. Select drive C then click OK.

Check Setup Log Files and “Temporary files”, click OK then click Delete Files. Restart the computer and run the newly downloaded installer. Once Python 2.6 is installed, install Pycairo then see if this is successful.
