PIP installation error: Microsoft Visual C + + 14.0 is required perfect solution

In the process of using Python development, we often need to install various modules, but we often encounter various errors in the installation process, such as: error: Microsoft Visual C + + 14.0 is required, this error is due to the lack of C + + compiler components.

There are two solutions to this problem

One is to directly download the corresponding wheel file for installation, providing three download addresses:

Tsinghua download (domestic site, fast speed) https://pypi.tuna.tsinghua.edu.cn/simple/pip/

Official download: https://pypi.org/project/face-recognition/1.0.0/#files

Python package https://www.lfd.uci.edu/~gohlke/pythonlibs/

Another solution is to install the missing components.

As for the second solution, I believe most people will download a visual studio 201x and install it as I used to. However, installing a vs takes up a lot of space, not to mention the key. Some people find it useless after installation, which is really irritating.

After all kinds of search, it was found that the C + + runtime provided by the government can be directly installed, which can be solved perfectly. The address is Microsoft Visual C + + build tools 2015


After downloading, double-click run to install with default settings. After the installation, go to PIP install XXX to show that the installation is successful.
