When installing TabPy in Anaconda environment, the following error occurs:

"Failed building wheel for twisted"


  • Tableau Desktop

1. Launch the Anaconda command prompt and check the version of Python.
python --version

2. Download the "twisted" module from the following link and install it in Anaconda.
      Download the "twisted" module from the above link, which should be the same as the Python version  ( For example Twisted-20.3.0-cp38-cp38-win_amd64.whl for Python 3.8)
2.2 Navigate to the download folder at the Anaconda command prompt and run the installation command.
      cd C:\Users\<Username>\Downloads   (If the download folder is Downloads)
      pip install Twisted-20.3.0-cp38-cp38-win_amd64.whl

3. Once the "twisted" module is installed, install tabpy again at Anaconda's command prompt.
    pip install tabpy


It seems that Anaconda could not build the wheel for twisted while installing Tabpy.
