I downloaded spyder using the
pip install spyder
in my windows 10 32-bit operating system, but i dont see any desktop icons or exe files to start running the IDE. I downloaded spyder 3, any my python is 3.6. I even tried creating a shortcut of spyder.exe from the Python3.6/Scripts folder, but it won't open.
The name of the spyder executable was changed to spyder3.exe in python version 3. I install pyqt5 and spyder via pip and was able to launch spyder3. I first tried without installing pyqt5 and nothing happened. Once I installed pyqt5, then spyder 3 opened.
Try the following from a windows cmd.exe prompt:
C:\Users\..>pip install pyqt5 C:\Users\..>pip install spyder C:\Users\..>spyder3
