Issues & Solutions for OpenVINO™ Installation & Configuration

This page lists issues that you may encounter during the installation and configuration of OpenVINO™, as well as their possible solutions.

Errors with Installing via PIP for Users in China

Users in China might encounter errors while downloading sources via PIP during OpenVINO™ installation. To resolve the issues, try one of the following options:

  • Add the download source using the -i parameter with the Python pip command. For example:

    pip install openvino-dev -i https://mirrors.aliyun.com/pypi/simple/

    Use the --trusted-host parameter if the URL above is http instead of https. You can also run the following command to install specific framework. For example:

    pip install openvino-dev[tensorflow2] -i https://mirrors.aliyun.com/pypi/simple/
  • For C++ developers, if you have installed OpenVINO Runtime via APT, YUM, or the archive file, and then installed OpenVINO Development Tools via PyPI, you may run into issues. To resolve that, install the components in requirements.txt by using the following command:

    pip install -r <INSTALL_DIR>/tools/requirements.txt

    For APT and YUM users, replace the INSTALL_DIR with /usr/share/openvino.
