Hello. I am having a lot of issues installing Pycurl on windows 10 Thonny IDE. From what I read, pycurl is generaly pain to download for Windows due to its poor package management. pip install pycurl simply does not work! From what I found out, the only reliable way is to download unofficial pycurl package from https://www.lfd.uci.edu/~gohlke/pythonlibs/ and then install it using cmd. However, I am not able to do that for some reason : 1620712020389.png

Note that this is thonny virtual environment shell and not a simple shell.

I have managed to install pycurl using a simple shell but that is still not recognised by thonny since it is a virtual environment.


I appreciate any tips..

I have managed to solve this issue. Thats very weird. I have upgraded pip to the latest version and then tried to install it using pip install:

It returned me an error but still proceeded with the installation. Anyways, I think I now have pycurl installed as it does not complain anymore when I import pycurl package into my python program.
