# QISKit not installing in PyCharm

I am attempting to setup a PyCharm project to study and work through the QISKit textbook. However I seem to be running into a propblem seting it up.

I have setup a python enviroment via anaconda (PyCharm does this automatically). I run pip install qiskit which returns the Failed buidling wheel for h5py error but I read online that this can be ignored.

I tried to import from qiskit but got an error saying ther is no reference to qiskit.

I tried the auto fix of installing the qiskit package again but it had an error displayed in the below screenshot.

Help would be appreciated in setting up my PyCharm project.

Many thanks.

• Turns out qiskit is not in the list of installed packages, hence the wheel error cannot be ignored. I get an error about it being unable to load dependency HDF5. – Ray117 Feb 26 at 17:53
