Thanks for Downloading ActivePython Community Edition

It contains a version of the Python core language and many of the popular third party packages – free to use for development purposes.

You are currently downloading the 64-bit MSI installer which is the preferred installer for most situations. Double click it and follow the onscreen prompts to complete installation. If you need an alternate installer for ActivePython, you’ll need to create an ActiveState Platform account and follow the workflow. The EXE and ZIP versions of ActivePython can then be downloaded under the “Download Builds” tab. If you require a 32-bit installer, you must subscribe to the Team Tier of the ActiveState Platform.

Community Edition gives you access to:

For other use beyond development, you’ll need to subscribe to a higher tier
