Having problems trying to gt LEAN working on my desktop

I am using Windows 10 I have downloaded LEAN and installed all its dependencies except for pythonnet. When I tried to run setup.py I get this error message:

 

    Install/updates required packages
    ---------------------------------

[conda] Successfully installed/updated: setuptools, pandas, pip, conda, wheel

    Install/updates pythonnet
    -------------------------

Could not install packages due to an EnvironmentError: [WinError 5] Access is denied: 'C:\\Users\\ADMINI~1\\AppData\\Local\\Temp\\pip-uninstall-0v3f60vy\\users\\administrator\\appdata\\local\\continuum\\anaconda3\\lib\\site-packages\\clr.pyd'
Consider using the `--user` option or check the permissions.

 

When I tried to compile lean with visual studio I get this error on my backtest window log

It seems to me the issue is probably this 

 

Unable to import python module ../../../Algorithm.Python/BasicTemplateAlgorithm.py. AlgorithmPythonWrapper(): The dynamic-link library for python3.6m could not be found.

 

Any help will be appreciated

Update Backtest







Could please check whether pip have access rights to anaconda's site-package folder?

The error message is a consequence of this command:

pip install git+https://github.com/QuantConnect/pythonnet

Please try to run it in the command line, if it fails, you can try to add --user.
