# install

I posted this in getting started channel but then found this channel which seems more appropriate... I am trying to install the python package for pulumi_azure_native on a windows 11 machine. I keep getting error messages when I run the command "pip install pulumi_azure_native" and it appears to be an issue with a requirement for C++ build tools. I have installed the latest C++ tools and rebooted but still getting errors. I am running the latest version of python. I had previous gotten an error about missing wheel and resolved that by installing it. This is the lowest line from the traceback: File "C:\Users\timot\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python311\Lib\site-packages\setuptools\_distutils\command\", line 547, in build_extension objects = self.compiler.compile( ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ File "C:\Users\timot\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python311\Lib\site-packages\setuptools\_distutils\", line 423, in compile raise CompileError(msg) distutils.errors.CompileError: command 'C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Microsoft Visual Studio\\2022\\BuildTools\\VC\\Tools\\MSVC\\14.34.31933\\bin\\HostX86\\x64\\cl.exe' failed with exit code 1 My question is, is anyone familar with this error and can suggest a way around it?
Found a previous thread that indicates it is an issue with the installer and latest version of Python 3.11
