I am not an expert on Windows issues as I primarily use Linux distros. So take what I suggest beyond this point with caution. Now with that said I do have a lot of troubleshooting experience, hence all the questions. And preliminary look at your issue, I would ask if you are using a MSVC compiler. There's an ongoing issue with later versions of Python and windows https://kivy.org/docs/installation/installation-windows.html
I would download it manually and see what happens then https://kivy.org/#download
And lastly what's the Python version?
Quote from the link I posted: "For Python < 3.5 we use the MinGW compiler. However, for Python 3.5+ on Windows we currently only support the MSVC compiler because of the following Python issue 4709 about MinGW. Generally this should make no difference when using precompiled wheels."
The site said permission denied or are you still using your terminal to download it?
That wasn't what I asked... where are you getting the error? On the site itself?
Which Linux distro is this? and what version of Kivy are you trying to install?
Oh, then I take it you are using a Python IDE?
What have you tried and what errors are you encountering?
Ok, I get it. I should use MSVC. I will try it.
I copy in the command prompt this commands: python -m pip install --upgrade pip wheel setuptools python -m pip install docutils pygments pypiwin32 kivy.deps.sdl2 kivy.deps.glew python -m pip install kivy.deps.gstreamer --extra-index-url https://kivy.org/downloads/packages/simple/ python -m pip install kivy after every step it give me permissionError, and tell me that access is denied.
I tried the instructions on kivy.org and it gave me the same error.
so should I try with older versions?
permissionError, Access is denied.
No, on command prompt.
it isn't linux, it's Windows 7. kivy virsion is 1.10.0
do you mean what I use for coding in python? I write the code on sublime and run it using command prompt.
