The Gurobi Python Interface for Python Users


The Gurobi Python Interface for Python Users

While the Gurobi installation includes everything you need to use Gurobi from within Python, we understand that some users would prefer to use Gurobi from within their own Python environment. Doing so requires you to install the gurobipy module. The steps for doing this depend on your platform. On Windows, you can double-click on the pysetup program in the Gurobi <installdir>/bin directory. This program will prompt you for the location of your Python installation; it handles all of the details of the installation.

Note that Gurobi distributes an Anaconda package, so you don't need to perform these steps if you are using Anaconda Python. Please refer to the instructions for setting up Gurobi for use within the Anaconda distribution for details.

Note that for this installation to succeed, your Python environment must be compatible with the Gurobi Python module. You should only install 32-bit Gurobi libraries into a 32-bit Python shell (similarly for 64-bit versions). In addition, your Python version must be compatible. With this release, gurobipy can be used with Python 2.7, 3.6, or 3.7 on Windows.
