Essentially I cannot seem to activate my virtualenv environment which I create.
I’m doing this inside of Windows PowerShell through using
but I get an error message:
“cannot be loaded because the execution of scripts is disabled on this
Could this be because I don’t carry administrator privileges on my computer?
Now we will see solution for issue: ‘virtualenv’ won’t activate on Windows
According to Microsoft Tech Support it might be a problem with Execution Policy Settings. To fix it, you should try executing
Set-ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted -Scope Process (as mentioned in the comment section by @wtsiamruk) in your PowerShell window. This would allow running virtualenv in the current PowerShell session.
There is also another approach that is more unsafe, but recommended by MS Tech Support. This approach would be to use
Set-ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted -Force (which do unleash powers to screw Your system up). However, before you use this unsafe way, be sure to check what your current ExecutionPolicy setting is by using
get-ExecutionPolicy. Then, when you are done, you can revert back to this ExecutionPolicy by using
Set-ExecutionPolicy %the value the get-ExecutionPolicy command gave you% -Force.
