Mxnet Installation on Windows with Anaconda

Hi

The book d2l seems very helpful with a healthy package of supporting material. I am new to mxnet and stuck in the installation process for CPU mentioned at https://www.d2l.ai/chapter_installation/index.html#installation. I already have an anaconda installation and created python environment with version 3.8.0. The following step:

pip install mxnet==1.7.0.post1

returns in this error:

Building wheels for collected packages: numpy
Building wheel for numpy (setup.py) … error
ERROR: Command errored out with exit status 1:

Please let me know where am I wrong??

Hi, guess u may try install MSFT C++ build on your machine from MSFT website, it seems that there are some code in the concerned package which needs to be compiled by MSFT C++ build tool chain
