Fix Python – Fatal error in launcher: Unable to create process using “”C:\Program Files (x86)\Python33\python.exe” “C:\Program Files (x86)\Python33\pip.exe””

Question

Asked By – Arc

Searching the net this seems to be a problem caused by spaces in the Python installation path.

How do I get pip to work without having to reinstall everything in a path without spaces ?

Now we will see solution for issue: Fatal error in launcher: Unable to create process using “”C:\Program Files (x86)\Python33\python.exe” “C:\Program Files (x86)\Python33\pip.exe””


Answer

it seems that

python -m pip install XXX 

will work anyway (worked for me)
