I could use some help with difficulties I'm experiencing. I hope I'm in the right place and some witty minds can nudge me in the right direction. I use PyCharm Professional 2017.2.3 on my notebook(Windows 10 Pro). I would like to be able to run/debug/deploy scripts to an remote machine currently with Windows 10 Pro, could be downgraded to Windows 7 if necessary. The scripts I'm creating are for automating UI stuff on Windows applications. I'm using packages like pywinauto and selenium.
I've tried two possible main solutions, but both did not provided me with satisfactory results.
On the remote machine I've installed WSL following the instructions provided by Jetbrains, and am able to setup a working remote interpreter by SSH.
The problem occurs on running my scripts. I guess because the Python instance used is running under Bash, I can't make use of pywinauto because it needs win32process. So unless there is a way to support win32process, or to redirect to a Windows instance of Python, this option can't be used.
Another option I tried is installing Python in Windows on the remote machine. I've also installed Win32 OpenSSH and the connections seems fine. When I add it as a remote interpreter it seems incorrect because it states "unknowns interpreter" and is not able to show a list of installed packages.
When I select the "Install packaging tools" it gives an error about not recognising "env".
I could really use some help here. Thank you in advance.
With kind regards,
