Unable to add Python3.6 interpreter Follow
I am running Windows 10. I have been using PyCharm effectively with Python 2.7.
I am trying to create a project with Python 3.6. I have installed Python 3.6 properly and tested that it works. However, when I try to add Python 3.6 as an interpreter, I get the error "The Selected file is not a valid home for Python SDK"
I have tried moving the python installation to a fully accessible folder on the root of my drive. The Python 2.7 and Python 3.6 folders have the same permissions. Does anyone know what I am doing wrong?

Have you tried running PyCharm as administrator?
In case it doesn't help, share a screenshot showing your interpreter configuration when trying to create it so I can check if everything is correct.
same problem even after run as adminstrator..
this is the screeenshot of creating project
Do you actually have read/write permissions to the folders and files PyCharm complaining about?
Try re-installing PyCharm from https://www.jetbrains.com/pycharm/download/ preliminary removing all the directories used by IDE https://www.jetbrains.com/help/pycharm/directories-used-by-the-ide-to-store-settings-caches-plugins-and-logs.html
You can export/import settings if you want to preserve them https://www.jetbrains.com/help/pycharm/sharing-your-ide-settings.html#import-export-settings
Has it helped?

i am unable to solve the issue
Have you followed the steps I provided?
By the way, have you tried creating virtualenv from the command line (outside of PyCharm)?
I don't know how to create virtualenv from the command line outside of PyCharm
Make sure to use the same python executable you are using as Base interpreter in PyCharm.
I am facing same issue. Logged in as Admin but folder permissions show read only. I am unable to change them. Plz help
Where do you see the folder permissions as "read only"? In PyCharm?
Thanks Andrey... I was able to sort the problem... Was a foolish error of 32 bit Python installed on lappy...
