How to make batch files run in anaconda prompt
After installing anaconda3 in windows, I can run python commands from the anaconda prompt, but not from the windows command prompt.
I would like to make a desktop shortcut to activate my environment and run spyder from it. Previously, I would do this with a
.bat file, but now that I cannot run python commands from
cmd.exe this doesn't work.
Is there an alternative way of running batch files for the anaconda prompt?
I know that I could just modify my
PATH to get
cmd.exe to run python commands, but I'd like to avoid this if possible.
I believe all the Anaconda prompt does is open CMD and run a batch file. Make the first command of your script:
call <anaconda_dir>/Scripts/activate.bat <anaconda_dir>
