I am trying to install Cutadapt in Windows 10 but I am have some problems with this. I have been following the installation instructions on: http://cutadapt.readthedocs.io/en/stable/installation.html, however with no success. As per the instructions, I have installed pip and the Microsoft Visual C++ 2017 BuildTools (the link on the Cutadapt installation page is broken for Microsoft Visual C++ Compiler for Python 2.7). When I try to install Cutadapt via pip, I get the following error:
c:\users\andy\appdata\local\programs\python\python36\include\pyconfig.h(59): fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'io.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 also went and retrieved the missing file and this revealed some other missing files (which I also retrieved). Ultimately, I still get the following error upon trying to install Cutadapt via pip:
c:\users\andy\appdata\local\programs\python\python36\include\io.h(26): warning C4068: unknown pragma c:\users\andy\appdata\local\programs\python\python36\include\_mingw.h(32): warning C4068: unknown pragma c:\users\andy\appdata\local\programs\python\python36\include\sdkddkver.h(26): warning C4068: unknown pragma c:\users\andy\appdata\local\programs\python\python36\include\_mingw.h(49): fatal error C1189: #error: ERROR: You must use a GNU Compiler. 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
Has anyone else had these problems and/or successfully installed Cutadapt in Windows 10? Any suggestions/advise would be really appreciated!
