When you googled and landed to this blog, I could say you are struggling to install XGBoost on your Python. Anyway, My environment is Windows 7 and I use Spyder Python 3.4.4. I like this Spyder, it has so many modules available such as Panda, Numpy, Seaborn, Matplotlib, etc but no XGBoost. Let’s me give you some tips on how to install it:
- Go to this GitHub, https://github.com/dmlc/xgboost and download the folder python-package. Save it into your python environment. …\python-package\xgboost. it depends on where you have your python.exe. I have several python versions on my computer.
- Go to this site, http://www.picnet.com.au/blogs/guido/post/2016/09/22/xgboost-windows-x64-binaries-for-download/ and download the latest libxgboost.dll. And save it to the same location as number 1.
- run python setup.py install.
- Once finished, open python console and type import xgboost to check if your installation ran successfully or not.
