    Correct, this is the System (All Users) installer. It will not update user-based installs unfortunately. The plan was to add the user-based version of Anaconda3 as well, however we ran into issues with updates not working when testing and will be unable to add the user-based version at this time. See https://ideas.patchmypc.com/ideas/PATCHMYPC-I-2734 for more details.

    Good work PMPC. It looks like it installs in System context for All Users ?

    Our current manually packaged version of Anaconda installs in User context.

    I believe that was done to ensure end users (who are not local admins) have write access to install modules etc (plus possibly also to play nicely with Carbon Black app-whitelisting).

    Will see if I can find a DEV user to try this new app out, to see how it behaves in their environment.

    Good News! Anaconda3 has been added to the catalog as of today - https://patchmypc.com/patch-my-pc-catalog-update-02-22-24 We sincerely appreciate your patience and understanding while we worked on getting this app added to the catalog. This particular application posed several challenges that required some creative solutions to ensure its seamless functionality. Thank you again for your ongoing support!

    It appears the recent 2023 releases on Anaconda3 use a non-standard format in their version number (2023.07-2) which includes a dash. This non-standard format prevents our current detection methods from working properly and we are unable to support products that require file version detection at this time.

    Please upvote the following idea to enable support for file version detection: https://ideas.patchmypc.com/ideas/PATCHMYPC-I-1591

    Hi Team, any reason to not just create a package that installs the latest and greatest? Wouldn't it be better to get this one done than sit on it any longer?

    Hello everyone! I'm looking for some feedback from those who are more familiar with Anaconda3 and the differences between each version. I noticed that some releases are associated with different versions of Python and want to understand if each should be treated separately like we currently do for Python (i.e. Python 3.10.x, Python 3.9.x, Python 3.8.x) or if any existing version of Anaconda3 can be upgraded to the latest without "breaking" anything. Please include your feedback in the comments as this will help determine how we proceed in adding this application to the catalog. Thanks!

    Example of a .yml file you could use in a post-install script to create a conda environment with all desired packages (conda figures out all the dependencies of course):

    Hi @Ben, maybe what you have in mind is Miniconda? More info here: https://docs.conda.io/en/latest/miniconda.html

    That could be a good starting point given the constraints you mention. I don't think it would be that difficult for users to add a post-install script to create one or more conda environments and download all the necessary packages + dependencies.

    Thanks Joe. The challenge we have is that while some customers expect the large content library download during installation - other customers may not. Think of an Autopilot scenario, if a customer tries to install Anaconda3 during Autopilot, that is going to almost certainly throw up some challenges with available bandwidth/timeouts. In the same thinking, trying to distribute software in an air gapped network will result in failure.

    I am going to mark this request for "Future Consideration". I have reached out to Anaconda support to ask if we can perform an offline install where the libraries do not download during installation. If you have reach into their support perhaps you could ask the same and we will reconsider the application for our catalog again soon.

    Regards

    Ben

    Ben,

    Comment from one of our devs, not sure if its of any use but its all I have right now.

    No that's the purpose of the distribution.

    It bundles all the data science libraries, and downloads them from pypi.

    We are currently looking at this app in our lab. Does anyone have any experience installing Anaconda 3 and preventing it reaching out to the internet to download 6GB of packages? Trying with the --offline switch but any knowledge on this will accelerate our adoption in the catalog.
