Problem:

When I try to run the below command on my command prompt:

python get-pip.py

It shows the following message:

C:\Users\ASUS>python get-pip.py
python: can't open file 'get-pip.py': [Errno 2] No such file or directory

How can I have pip installed in my system. Then why am I getting this error message and why I can not open this file. 

Thanks in advance.

Solution:

To solve your issue you can navigate to the folder with script

cd "C:\Python\Tools\Scripts"

or you can add this to your path varibale.Then try to run the command:

python get-pip.py

or

pip install <package_name>

or if that doesn't work use;

python -m pip install <package_name> 

or you can use this;

py -3 -m pip install <package_name>

If you installed pip in the time of your python installation this might be a problem. You should upgrade it by unning the command:

python -m pip install -U pip

Hope this helps you to solve your problem. If it is not working let me know.

Happy coding.

Problem: No such file or directory error? Are you staring at an error that says: python: can't open file 'myfile.txt': [Errno 2] No such file or directory Or maybe: IOError : No such file or directory Are you saying something like: "Curses! It works on my machine?"?
