If the below steps don’t work for you, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with details.
Step 1: Install Python¶
Download and install Python 3.7. (3.8 not recommended currently.)
Check the box to add Python to PATH:
Step 2: Install oTree¶
Go to the folder where you want to store your oTree project. Then click the “File” menu and open PowerShell:
Enter this command at the prompt:
pip3 install -U otree
If you get an error like “Microsoft Visual C++ is required”, uninstall Python 3.8 and install 3.7 (simple solution), or install the Visual C++ Build Tools (somewhat more complicated).
