Tool Install Error - "Could not build wheels for cryptography which use PEP 517..."

6 - Meteoroid

Hello, I'm trying to install the Microsoft PowerBI Output Tool in Alteryx (I've tried on versions 2020.2 and 2020.3) and am getting the error message below:


An error occurred during installation.

ERROR: Could not build wheels for cryptography which use PEP 517 and cannot be installed directly


Has anyone run into this before and know a fix to try? The articles I've been seeing online are focused on python and don't mention Alteryx. Thank you!

The backend of the PowerBI output is actually Python, which is why you're primarily seeing help articles related to that!


With regard to this error, I've seen it once before. Another user on Community posted these instructions, which resolved it. You can also reach out to to get help with this.
