I saw other guys who have the same problem, i.e install psychopy with anaconda.
I followed these guidelines: http://www.psychopy.org/download.html -> Anaconda and miniconda installation.
There were a lot of errors.
I work with windows 7.
Is there any solution to work with psychopy 3.1 running with python 3.5 (i use other module which work with python 3.5 and above).
Hi @jeanJ, could you show what errors you received when installing PsychoPy with Conda?
Sorry for my late response.
The errors are:
PackagesNotFoundError: the following packages are not available from current channels:
pysoundfile -> libsndfile
pysoundfile -> libgcc-ng[version=’>=7.3.0’]
i try to install the next package with pip: pip install zmq json-tricks pyparallel sounddevice pygame pysoundcard psychopy_ext psychopy
…And there are errors too (see below)
Any idea to solve the problem in order to install psychopy with conda?
Errors with pip command:

Hi @jeanJ, the issue was raised on GitHub but solved by downloading the correct pyWinHook for your version of Python. I think the PyWinHook wheels are only supported with Python 2.7, 3.6 and 3.7 (64bit) (https://pypi.org/project/pyWinhook/1.6.1/#files).
I indeed realized that i used a 32 bit processor so i have i have to find an other solution. I need python 3.5 or higher, any suggestion?
There is a 32bit Python 2.7 version available in the GitHub link I posted. Alternatively, you could try the standalone version of PsychoPy.
Thanks to this thread I was able to successfully install Psychopy with conda. I was misled by the instructions here: https://www.psychopy.org/download.html#conda
In those instructions, Python 3.5 is recommended, which results in the pyWinhook build failure! Perhaps those instructions could be changed? Creating a Python 3.6 environment makes everything work smoothly.
Thanks Kevin, have suggested an edit to those docs here:
