I recently installed IDL 8.8.3 and decided to setup the bridge to Python. I added to the PATH variable and ran setup.py in the correct directory. Everything looks OK. In Python 3.7.6 I can run
from idlpy import *
When I run in IDL > np=Python.Import('Numpy') I get
% PYTHON::LOAD: numpy is not installed for this python distribution and is required for the IDL-python bridge. numpy can be installed by running "c:\users\d.van.dusschoten\Anaconda3\python.exe -m pip install numpy".
numpy is installed in ....Anaconda3\lib\site-packages so I also added this to PATH.
Same error. I ran the command as suggested by IDL, but obviously that didn't work since numpy is already installed. So here I am stuck, again. I've never managed to get this bridge to work, but now I really need it...
Hopefully someone can help me out here.
