Visual Studio Express 2013 and Python Tools for Visual Studio (PTVS) 2.2 on Windows 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have a Windows 7 SP1 laptop which still runs remarkably well. For the purposes of this post, VS=Visual Studio.

    I installed VS 2013 Express (Update 5) in order to be able to faithfully follow a specific tutorial series.

    I also had to installed PTVS (Python Tools for VS) for VS Express 2013 -- called PTVS 2.2 (donwloaded from MS website).

    Both installed without any errors.  But when I went into VS 2013 Express and selected the Python platoform, I got the following error message (in a window all by itself):

    Unsupported version: Python 3.7.

    Is there a way around this, or should I try Pythn 2.7 instead?

    Sould be grateful for any advice, tips or suggestions.
