RPA Framework Library installation issue using pip

I’m facing issues while installing rpaframework using pip. Can any one help me out?

Unless you specifically install pre-compiled wheel, pycryptodome will require that there’s a working c/c++ compiler on your machine (eg, msvc). More details here: https://wiki.python.org/moin/WindowsCompilers.

Why it tries to do this “compilation” part ? According to the screenshot (btw, screenshots are bad) you are running Python 3.9 and according to the release here: https://pypi.org/project/pycryptodome/#files - there is no pre-compiled wheel (.whl file) for Windows running python 3.9 …


  • install msvc
  • downgrade or use pyenv or similar to have multiple python versions and use python 3.8 for now before pycryptodome actually ships python3.9 compatible package for your box.

Thanks for the help. I downgraded my python version to 3.8 and it worked for me.

Hi Akshita, I have same issues . pip install rpaframework and pip install rpaframework[desktop] fails at my new laptop running python 3.9 but at my old laptop runing 3.8 ( need to return for a lease rol). How I downgrade to python 3.8 or have multiple python env.
