How to Download Spyder IDE 4.2.0 on windows 32-bit (7, 8, 8.1, 10)
Whirlpool (156)

So recently I downloaded Spyder IDE on my windows 7 32-bit

So how can you do so?

Check out this site which has python packages:

https://www.lfd.uci.edu/~gohlke/pythonlibs/

The problem in downloading Spyder IDE on 32 bit is:

Spyder IDE (3.3.6+) requires U-json (ultra-json) python package..
The problem is that ujson is for windows 64-bit only!

step-1:

Goto https://www.lfd.uci.edu/~gohlke/pythonlibs/
And hit "Ctrl+F" or open find in page button and search for "ujson" you will find many files..
The file that you need has:
[Package name]-[version]-[python version]-[windows processor]
Like I have python 3.7
So I have to download "ujson-4.0.1-cp37-cp37m-win32.whl"
The one with win_amd64 is for windows 64 bit

Now goto cmd (commnd prompt)
And type

pip

If you see some thing in output then pip is installed..

Then navigate to the folder where the file is downloaded..\
And type:

Pip install [filename]

For me it is:

Pip install ujson-4.0.1-cp37-cp37m-win32.whl

It will install..
Please NOTE: this is a online work so you have to be connected to internet..
If installation is finished..
The type:

Pip install spyder==4.2.0

It will download spyder and all its dependencies and install them..
Check if spyder is installed by typing "Spyder" in cmd
Or check the folder under
python directory/scripts and find spyder.exe in it..
