Prerequisites

In order to use the OpenEye Python toolkits, a compatible version of Python must be installed. Instructions on installing Python are given in this document.

Python3 is binary compatible between minor versions on Linux and macOS, so the “python3” distribution works in for Python 3.5 and higher. On Windows, 3.6 and 3.7 are supported. Below are the different Python versions supported for various platforms.

Linux installation also requires the zlib and libcairo libraries be available. These are usually available on Desktop Linux installations by default, but may not be available on Linux server installations.

Linux

The following platforms and Python versions are supported with one single build Linux package:

  • RHEL6, RHEL7, Ubuntu 16.04, Ubuntu 18.04
    • 3.[5-7]

If you have issues using the single build package on RHEL6, please contact support@eyesopen.com.

macOS

The following platforms and Python versions are supported with one single build macOS package:

  • macOS 10.12 - 10.14
    • 3.[5-7]

Windows

On Windows, packages are built for specific Python versions.

  • 3.6 (x86 and x64)
  • 3.7 (x86 and x64)

Note

VSRUNTIME140.dll and MSVCP140.dll are dependencies of OpenEye Windows dlls. The recommended Anaconda Python provides these.
