How to fix: Python version 2.7 requried, which wasn't found in the registry

06 Jun 2016

I encounter this problem when I install PIL-1.1.7 on my 64-bit Windows 7 platform.

Run the following command in administrator mode, and the problem fixed:

reg copy HKLM\SOFTWARE\Python HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Python /s

Thanks to the first comment under the answer .


Use pip install Pillow to install PIL instead of using the official binary setup file for Windows, because the official site only provide a 32-bit version, the _imaging library will not work on Windows 64-bit platform.
