I am trying to run
pip install mysql-python connector but it keeps giving me an error “Cannot open include file: ‘config-win.h’“.
The installation works fine on my Mac and another Windows machine, but not this one. I have downloaded Visual Studio C++ and tried installing as both 32 bit and 64.
_mysql.c(42) : fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'config-win.h': No s uch file or directory error: command 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC\BIN\c l.exe' failed with exit status 2 ---------------------------------------- Cleaning up...

for 64-bit windows
install using wheel
pip install wheel
download from http://www.lfd.uci.edu/~gohlke/pythonlibs/#mysql-python
For python 3.x:
pip install mysqlclient-1.3.8-cp36-cp36m-win_amd64.whl
For python 2.7:
pip install mysqlclient-1.3.8-cp27-cp27m-win_amd64.whl
This didnt work for me:
pip install mysqlclient
so i found this after a while on stackoverflow:
pip install --only-binary :all: mysqlclient
and it went all through, no need for MS Visual C++ 14 Build tools and stuff
Note: for now this doesnt work with Python3.7, i also had to downgrade to Python 3.6.5
well this worked for me:
pip install mysqlclient
this is for python 3.x in window 7 i am not sure about other windows os versions
I am using Windows 10 and overcame this issue by running the
pip install mysql-connector command in Windows PowerShell rather than the Command Prompt.
you can try to install another package:
pip install mysql-connector-python
This package worked fine for me and I got no issues to install.
Assume you want to install package
MySQL-python on Windows, maybe try
pip install command with
--global-option. See the example command below:
pip install MySQL-python ^ --force-reinstall --no-cache-dir ^ --global-option=build_ext ^ --global-option="-IC:myinstallMySQL-x64MySQL Connector C 6.0.2include" ^ --global-option="-LC:myinstallMySQL-x64MySQL Connector C 6.0.2libopt" ^ --verbose
For this example, I fully installed 64-bit version of
MySQL Connector C in customized location of
C:myinstallMySQL-x64MySQL Connector C 6.0.2.
By the way, I noticed that
pip install MySQL-python by default always looks into directory
C:Program Files (x86)MySQLMySQL Connector C 6.0.2include, even if you’re using 64-bit and/or have installed the driver at a different location. I tested on Python-2.7, and I guess this is a bug of either Python or MySQL-python.
Hope the above might be of some help.
For me, it worked when I selected the correct bit of my Python version, NOT the one of my computer version.
Mine is 32bit, and my computer is 64bit. That was the problem and the 32bit version of fixed it.
to be exact, here is the one that worked for me:
python 3.7 on windows, I find previous solutions seems not work for me.
Here is what worked for me:
pip install wheel pip install mysqlclient-1.4.2-cp37-cp37m-win_amd64.whl python -m pip install mysql-connector-python python -m pip install SQLAlchemy
