Question

[Solved] Python: can’t open file ‘setup.py’: [Errno 2] No such file or directory. Directory Change does not remove error

I am trying to install pymysql to a windows 8 machine and have been having trouble with the installation for python 3.3 I got the mython-mysql driver to work fine for 2.

7 but this is giving me some issues
so far I have been denied access which I fixed with

runas /savecred /user:Luke "python setup.py install"
luke is an administrator profile and should have access but this prompts on a second window the following error:

Python: can't open file 'setup.py': [Errno 2] No such file or directory.

to fix this I prefaced the install command with:

cd C:Python33PyMySQLpy3k

unfortunately this did not fix the problem and still receiving the same error message.

i have checked Python: setup.py missing: No such file or directory but it only said to change the directory which I have tried

Does anyone have any idea as to why this might be happening? The file is there. why can’t it read or find it?
