  1. I have bought the course but having I am trouble install the packages . This is what i did so far:
    – I installed Anaconda 3, 64-bit on a Windows 10 machine
    – I created the virtual environment as instructed
    – I downloaded the files from your Github repository
    – when I navigate to the directory where the files are located and run the “conda install –file conda-reqs.txt –yes” command, I get a PackageNotFoundError: Package not found: Conda could not find ´

    What could be the problem and how can I fix it?

  2. Hi Marco. I found the problem, the first package (appnope) is for OS X, so in Windows the install quits immediately. I was able to install the packages (less three or four that are for OS X) individually through Anaconda Navigator.
