I am trying to run
pip install mitmproxy on Windows, but I keep getting access denied, even with
PowerShell using the
Run as Administrator option.
WindowsError: [Error 5] Access is denied: 'c:\\users\\bruno\\appdata\\local\\temp\\easy_install-0fme6u\\cryptography-0.9.1\\.eggs\\cffi-1.1.2-py2.7-win-amd64.egg\\_cffi_backend.pyd'
How can I make this work?
Now we will see solution for issue: pip install access denied on Windows
For Windows, in Command Prompt (Admin) try to run
pip install using the Python executable:
python -m pip install mitmproxy
This should work, at least it worked for me for other package installation.
