What softwares do I download to be able to do python programming

Hi. I am just new to programming and want to do python. I am looking to install python on my system but the one I saw is for windows 10. My system is windows 7 and 32 bit. Please, how do I install python to run on this computer. Will need all help because I am just new. In fact, this is my first day and the instructions say install python before starting.

Installing Python 3 on Windows 7

  1. Point your web browswer to the download page on the Python website.
  2. Select the latest Windows x86 MSI Installer ( python -3.2. …
  3. Run the installer (note: IE 9 will offer you this option when you click on the link).
  4. Select Install for all users (the default option) and click the Next > button.

Just download this file and run through the installer, don’t forget to check Add python to PATH or some tutorials may not work

I downloaded the file and it says I need windows 7 sp1 to run the install. I don’t have sp1 in my system.

Please, can you give me the direct link. I cannot find the msi installer. What I can find is the 3.8.3 exe file and the exe file says I need windows 7 sp1 to run it. I don’t have the sp1 and microsoft has disabled updates.

As you correctly stated, Python 3.6 no longer has MSI installers available.

However, the setup PE has command line switches that will let you install silently without GUI. /quiet will install with default options without showing the GUI.

See https://docs.python.org/3/using/windows.html (section 3.1.4) for a full list of options.


Thanks will try it. I believe it will work. But will give feedback if I fail to do it correctly.

Thanks everyone. Python 3.6 installed. Will have to buy a new computer to get 3.8 methinks. cheers. Please, can anyone recommend a text editor that I can use? I would like something I can still use for html.

Visual Studio Code (VS Code) is easy to use and also it’s one of the most popular editors for web/python. Watch some tutorial to get used to it. You can edit python, html and more. Download link
