Error Creating Conda Virtual Environment

Post by binarybits »

Hi,

I'm trying to install FaceSwap on Windows and I get the following errors:

CondaEnvironmentNotFoundError: Could not find environment: base .
Creating Conda virtual environment...

[Stuff about creating the environment]

CommandNotFoundError: 'deactivate'
Error creating Conda virtual environment.
Install aborted.

Can anyone suggest what might be wrong here? I'm on Windows 10. I tried installing AnaConda but it said the package was already installed.

Thanks.

-Tim

I'll look into this to make sure the command hasn't been deprecated

Do you have an internet connection?

Most likely, the installer failed to download MiniConda.

You can try running the Faceswap installer again, or you can install miniconda yourself, manually, and then run the Faceswap installer again

Error Creating Conda virtual environment.

Post by Grassone »

Hello:
New PC:

Ryzen 2700x
Ventus GeForce RTX 2700
16G ram
3T hdd


Tried to do ALL the steps listed in app.php/faqpage#f1r1
But no luck:

i am stuck with this error.

NOTE 1
Miniconda seems to be installed fine (it can be successufully uninstalled by WIN 10 app manager)

NOTE 2
I found these exe files:
python.exe
python3.exe
python3.7.exe

in the C:\Users\Fulvio AMD\AppData\Local\Microsoft\WindowsApps directory.

Should I remove them ? Do they hurt ?

PLZ. Help.

Try manually installing MiniConda into a location which does not have spaces in the path, then specifying the manual location when installing Faceswap

Interesting... now i have 2 miniconda3 directories...
one in C:\fs\miniconda3
the second in C:\Users\fulvio AMD\miniconda3

Faceswap installer detected the existing miniconda3 installation, but apparently cloned it into the users\fulvio AMD\miniconda3 directory....

I'll let you know how it ends...

The most common cause of this issue is spaces in your username.

This seems insane, true, but it is an issue with Miniconda, not with Faceswap (ref: https://github.com/conda/conda/issues/8725)

Most times, uninstalling Miniconda/Anaconda and than manually installing from here: https://repo.anaconda.com/miniconda/Min ... x86_64.exe to a location which does not have spaces in the folder name fixes the issue.

Just make sure you specify the location of your Miniconda folder when you install faceswap.
