PyCharm has not detected installed interpreter

Hi,

I have just installed PyCharm 2.6.3 on Windows 8 Pro (x64) with Python 2.7.3 installed (and working) however PyCharm has not detected the Python installation.

One would assume it would detect it and configure it in the Python Interpreters section of settings. Am I wrong in my assumption? Do I have to configure it myself? I cannot find much information on this from a glance at Google relating to this.

PyCharm auto-detects Python if it's installed in the default location (C:\Python27). If the autodetection failed, you need to go to Settings | Python Interpreters and add the interpreter manually.

Hi Dmitry,

Python is installed to the default location at C:\Python27 and is also included in the system PATH variable however PyCharm does not detect it either on a Windows 8 Pro x64 system or a Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 x64 system. I have added it manually to Python Interpreters however I would like to figure out why it has not detected it automatically.

Is there a log file of the installation anywhere that might hold some answers?

At the moment PyCharm does not log any information during the Python interpreter detection process.

Ok. Thanks for the reply anyway. If I find some kind of solution I will post back here. Have a great Christmas and New Year!
