Question about Starting with Pycharm

+4 Alexander Thomas · May 29, 2016
I downloaded Pycharm and opened it up to create my first project. When I clicked on create A new project the python interpreter wasn't already displayed like it was in the video. Can someone please help? Thanks

Hello Alexander,
Yes it happens because you installed a program that edits .py files (pycharm) but not installed python itself. so you should download python and install it than give to pycharm the python.exe file  location.
https://www.python.org/downloads/

Just to understand, is something like, i wrote a <html> code but i dont have a browser to interpret it :)
cheers

What do you mean? Do you have a version of Python installed?

I had the same problem. 

You need to tell pycharm where your Phython.exe file is. I did the mistake by selecting the installation file and hit a bunch of problems. 
My file was stored in C:\Users\Andri Geir Arnarson\AppData\Local\Programs\Python

But to acctually find the appdata folder I had to make hidden files on my computer visable again.

Hope this hepls

Look at the video on installing python then, installing  phycharm.   Pycharm is just a "GUI interface shell" to run python under. You need to also install  python its self then tell pycharm what its path is.

You download python itself from here: https://www.python.org/
