Filename.whl is not supported wheel on this platform

1.7K    Asked by MelvinForbis in Python , Asked on Jun 2, 2021

I would like to install scipy-0.15.1-cp33-none-win_amd64.whl that I have saved to the local drive. I am using:

pip 6.0.8 from C:Python27Libsite-packages python 2.7.9 (default, Dec 10 2014, 12:28:03) [MSC v.1500 64 bit (AMD64)]

when I am running:

pip install scipy-0.15.1-cp33-none-win_amd64.whl

And getting error “is not a supported whl on this platform” as shown below:

scipy-0.15.1-cp33-none-win_amd64.whl is not supported wheel on this platform

What happened exactly? And how to resolve it?

Answered by Carl Paige

 This error occur due to cp33 which means CPython 3.3 but here you need scipy‑0.15.1‑cp27‑none‑win_amd64.whl instead of that.
