I have a problems installing HTSeq on windows 7. I have installed Python 2.7 and numpy, but when I input the command " install" in the comand prompt I get the error: symlinking folders for python2 Traceback (most recent call last): File "", line 20, in <module> os.symlink(py_fdn+fdn.fdn) AttributeError: "module" object object has no attribute "symlink"

Any advice would be great. Thanks

My first advice is to read this and then provide some more information, like versions of software, if you are installing on cmd.exe or cygwin, etc. I would also suggest you use virtualenv + pip, or conda, to install python packages. Finally, it seems windows support may have been dropped, as the documentation mentions a "Windows installer" which is not to be found anymore - go here to find very old windows versions.

My final advice is to use Linux. Few (if any) people here use windows, so no user base to help you.

This is not really the right place to ask for installation problems.
