Installing new Python Packages

I am running into an issue when installing new packages to the Alteryx Miniconda environment.  The folders are set to read only, and I cannot change that property.  This leads to the following error.

What do I need to do to install new packages?

I've solved my own problem. Basically this stems from my unfamiliarity with Anaconda/Miniconda and the condas environment.  I had to create a new environment and was able to install the packages into that new environment.

 

conda create --name YOURNAMEHERE python=3.6

This will create a new environment with your environment name in C:\Program Files\Alteryx\bin\Miniconda3\envs\YOURNAMEHERE.

 

NOTE: It will complain about a space in the path due to it being located in the Program Files directory.
