Where are you downloading it from? What are the error messages?

How much memory and which CPU does your computer have? Also, are you trying to run a python file?

Sao Paulo Odhiambo That sounds like a problem for Windows 8. It's most likely not compatible.

Pycharm is a completely seperate program, I dont remember if it includes Python rodwynnejones

What could I do then?

? Does pycharm rely on python from 'python.org' to work or is a completely separate program? if it doesn't, try pycharm then.

Sao Paulo Odhiambo You might have to install Python as well. But I can't remember since I have only installed it once 😞

The pop up is," this up can't run on your PC to find a version for your PC ,check with the software publisher"

have you try the x86 version ? the only other reason i can think of is your os. could be missing updates or the installation itself.

+2

Well,I update the version weekly

Thank you so much for your advices,I will try pycharm then
