I can import modules like math but not random. I am using Windows 10. Can anyone tell me how to I load modules please.

I have gone to command line and tried to use pip but pip cannot be found. I have found pip3.8.exe but it just opens an empty command line window, then closes it.

Can someone tell me please how to load modules and how I set paths for pip and python to find them.

Many thanks.

I would recommend installing pip by following these steps here:

  • Download

  • Open a command prompt and go to the directory containing

  • Run this command:

  • To check if the installation was successful, open a command prompt and run:
pip -V

Note that you would need python installed in order to be able to do the above.

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby
