Problem :

Following is my issue: I tried to install mysqlclient like below :

C:\Users\alecxe>pip install mysqlclient Collecting mysqlclient Using cached https://files.pythonhosted.org/packages/ec/fd/83329b9d3e14f7344d1 cb31f128e6dbba70c5975c9e57896815dbb1988ad/mysqlclient-1.3.13.tar.gz

Installed collected packages: mysqlclient

Ran setup.py install for mysqlclient

After that ran build_ext

Got below error :

building '_mysql' extension
creating build\temp.win-amd64-3.6
creating build\temp.win-amd64-3.6\Release
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual 
_mysql.c(29): fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'mysql.h': No such file or directory
error: command 'C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Microsoft Visual Studio\\2017\\BuildTools\\VC\\Tools\\MSVC\\14.14.26428\\bin\\HostX86\\x64\\cl.exe' failed with exit status 2

 I am the complete beginner to this and would be very happy if any input as to how to go about fixing above error.

Solution :

I had the same issue and tried all the solutions which I knew, and neither of them worked actually after long research I found the solution for the error as below:

Firstly I tried installing MySQL Connector/C from here

Secondly I tried copying MySQL Connector C 6.1 folder from the Program files/MySQL into the  Program files (x86)/MySQL

Please note that you might have to create the MySQL folder if it does not exist in your Program files (x86).

It worked for me, it seems it is for all 64-bit windows, pip or more.  Most probably mysqlclient setup script only looks for Program files (x86) folder for some MySQL files for e.g. 'mysql.h' and do not search Program files and since it did not find anything in your Program files (x86) it will raise the error !!
