The Green Girl Installs PyCharm

The Green Girl installed PyCharm to kick off her Python learning.

I downloaded the free version of PyCharm for Windows from here.

I installed PyCharm using the defaults and then launched the application.

I clicked ‘Create New Project’ and then created a PyCharm directory in the root of my c: drive.

I tried to click ‘Create’ but the option was greyed out and I realized there was a message stating ‘No Python interpreter selected’.

I downloaded the latest version of Python from here.

I exited PyCharm and relaunched it. I chose the radio option for ‘New environment using’ and this time, there was a path to the python executable for the Base interpreter.

The ‘No python interpreter selected’ warning had disappeared and I was able to click ‘Create’.
