Install Phidget Drivers for Windows

Before getting started with the guides below, ensure you have the following components installed on your machine:

  1. You will need the Phidgets Windows Drivers
  2. You will need a version of Python installed on your machine (2.7 and 3.6+ are compatible with Phidgets).


The recommended way to install the Phidget22 Python module is using the PIP package manager.

Python versions 2.7.9+ and 3.4+ include PIP by default. To install the Phidget22 Python module with PIP, simply open the Command Prompt (press the Windows key and search for "cmd"), and enter the command:

python -m pip install Phidget22

To install the Phidget22 libraries to a specific Python version, you can use the Python Windows Launcher from the Command Prompt as follows (replace -X.X with your Python version, e.g. -2.7 or -3.6):

py -X.X -m pip install Phidget22

To install the Phidget22 Python module without PIP, you will need to download the Phidget22 Python module. After unpacking the Phidget22 Python module, open the Command Prompt (press the Windows key and search for "cmd") Locate the folder where you downloaded the Python module and enter the following command:

python setup.py install

This will build the module and install the Python module files into your site-packages directory.
