Anaconda in custom location seems to cause problems

Answered

Hi,

I'm using Win 10 with Anaconda 5

I've got Anaconda installed on my D drive (D:\Tools\Anaconda3)

I just tried to install PyCharm, but I've found that if I try to reference the Anaconda interpreter (whether the root interpreter or another environment) I get a red line in the bottom right of the settings window reading "Anaconda installation is not found". I've found someone else asking about this on stackoverflow.

I'm following the instructions here:

Thanks,

Steve

So apparently, there's an open bug on this somewhere.

The trick is to create a symbolic link with your anaconda directory under the home directory.

mklink /D %HOMEPATH%\anaconda D:\Tools\Anaconda3

I followed these instructions, but it does not seem to help. My installation is in C:\Anaconda

Also on windows 10, pycharm 2017.3 Pro and anaconda 5.0.1

Now idea where to start now that the above doesn't work... any help/pointers?

Hi! There's no longer need in this workaround, 2018.1 EAP build contains the fix for the corresponding UI:

I am sorry it took so long!

I'm new to PyCharm, didn't realize you were talking about an early access build. Thanks!

Hi Pavel, is your solution valid also for Intellij Ultimate Edition?

Do I need to install the 2018.1 EAP version?

Thanks
