This post explains & guides you through the more robust way to install the open sourced RPA based python package ClointFusion.
Before going into the content, It's recommended to checkout the post Automation with Python | ClointFusion, which'll give a brief idea on ClointFusion.
Alright, enough intro 😅, let's dive into the requirements pane.
Well, following were the recommended requirements for the package:
- A 64-bit Windows 10 OS installed machine 💻.
- At least of 3 to 4GB of free space 💽.
- Python 3.9.1.
- VS C++ 14.0 Build Tools.
- Anaconda Individual Distribution.(recommended for ML practitioners)
- A Decent Internet Connection 📡.
*Note: Since this package is only compatible with
Python 3.9.1, there could be some difficulties for those working on ML things which requires
Python 3.8.5or lower. Don't worry, I hold your back. In the **Install Python section, I've actually proposed a way to overcome it. You're free to use any alternative method, however, that you find useful.***
Well, with that said, let's dive into the installation then.
Before installing the python, let's install and configure the dependencies first.

Click on Install. Depending on you internet speed, it'll take a while to get download & install.
- Reboot if required.
Once it installed, you're good to go to install Python 3.9.1
Checkout more information about VS Build Tools here
Well, with the successful installation of MS Visual C++ 14.0 Build Tools, we are ready to install
- Remove older versions of Python if exists.
- Download Python 3.9.1 here
Within few moments, python 3.9.1 will be installed in your machine.
For ML practitioners, who need to have
Python 3.8.5or lower, it's highly recommended to checkout the post Install both Anaconda & Python | Windows before installing python 3.9.1
Well, with the successful installation of
Python 3.9.1, it's time to install
Follow the instructions given below for a successful install.
pipusing the following command.
python -m pip install --upgrade pip
- Install the
ClointFusionpackage using the following command.
pip install --upgrade ClointFusion
- Depending on your internet speed, this'll take some decent amount of time to install. Take a break/ Have a coffee ☕.
With the dependencies installed, you've successfully installed
ClointFusion package. Let's run the first self test. This test
runs a bunch of tests & checks whether the ClointFusion functions works fine with the current machine configuration or not.
Alright, Let's start the test.
- Close all opened applications.
pythonto open the python interpreter.
- Enter the following command to import
import ClointFusion as cf
Sit back & Relax till the self test gets completed.
While the self test runs, many applications like excel, notepad & browser will fire up automatically. Don't get panic 😨 or contact the technical assistance.
Congratulations! 🎉,with that steps implemented you've successfully completed
ClointFusion setup in your windows machine.
See you in the next post!😀
