Windows 10 Failed building wheel for cryptography

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f326d45b5e0>

Hi All!

I’m having a bit of trouble installing Home Assistant directly to my Windows PC.

I’ve installed The latest Python build “python-3.9.0-amd64.exe” & and the latest C++Buildtools from the MS Visual Studios installer.

When I run:

py -m pip install homeassistant

I get this error when building wheel for Cryptography:

  Building wheel for cryptography (PEP 517) ... error
  ERROR: Command errored out with exit status 1:

Now I’ve attempted to do my due diligence before posting here. And attempted to follow the instructions laid out on Cryptography’s website

They say to just do:

py -m pip install cryptography

Which I did, and got the following in response:

C:\Users\BRODI>py -m pip install cryptography
Requirement already satisfied: cryptography in c:\users\brodi\appdata\local\programs\python\python39\lib\site-packages (3.1.1)
Requirement already satisfied: cffi!=1.11.3,>=1.8 in c:\users\brodi\appdata\local\programs\python\python39\lib\site-packages (from cryptography) (1.14.3)
Requirement already satisfied: six>=1.4.1 in c:\users\brodi\appdata\local\programs\python\python39\lib\site-packages (from cryptography) (1.15.0)
Requirement already satisfied: pycparser in c:\users\brodi\appdata\local\programs\python\python39\lib\site-packages (from cffi!=1.11.3,>=1.8->cryptography) (2.20)

I attempted to run Home Assistant and apparently it wasn’t installed. So I ran the installer again and wound up getting the same error.

Finally I went to plan B. I installed the latest OpenSSL binary distribution from Softpedia. Win64OpenSSL-1_1_1h.exe, and attempted to use OpenSSL by creating the environment variables similar to the ones on Cryptography’s Website.

Example:

C:\> \path\to\vcvarsall.bat x86_amd64
C:\> set LIB=C:\OpenSSL-win64\lib;%LIB%
C:\> set INCLUDE=C:\OpenSSL-win64\include;%INCLUDE%
C:\> pip install cryptography

Mine:

Variable Name: HomeAssistant 1
Varriable Value: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2019\BuildTools\VC\Auxiliary\Build\vcvarsall.bat x86_amd64

Variable Name: HomeAssistant 2
Variable Value: C:\> set LIB=C:\Program Files\OpenSSL-Win64\lib;%LIB%

Variable Name: HomeAssistant 3
Variable Value: C:\> set INCLUDE=C:\Program Files\OpenSSL-Win64\include;%INCLUDE%

Variable Name: HomeAssistant 4
Variable Value: C:\> pip install cryptography

I restarted my computer and tried to install Home Assistant one last time and again the same error popped up.

Can someone tell me what the heck I’m doing wrong?! I know I can run it as a Virtual Machine but I would rather run it locally. But if that’s what I have to do I guess I’ll do it…

Thanks in advanced for the help,
~BJ
