Scann Installation issue on windows

The following error occured when attempting to install scann locally in command line using pip install scann.

ERROR: Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement scann (from versions: none)
ERROR: No matching distribution found for scann

Please advise on how to install this python package in Windows. Thank you!


Probably, you can find a solution for Windows in this Issue from Scann’s repository:

According to it “The scann package does not support windows at this time”, but may be you can compile it from the sources. As far as I understood it requires the ancient Python versions.

PS. Unfortunately, exactly the same thing on OSX.

Hi @arrancarr,

Sometimes this error occurs because a particular package is not available for a particular python version.

Please make sure the python version you are using is the same as the one used in the course.


Please use docker to run a python interpreter inside a linux container. That way, you can run the assignments on any platform that docker is supported on.

@giovanni.lignarolo, @Mubsi It’d be nice to provide requirements.txt for all courses to make building an image easier.

Thanks for the recommendation. I’l pass this along.

Totally agreed and the corresponding versions will save us in big time.
