Prerequisite – Software Part

Before user can work on Pinguino programming, user needs to do two initial steps. This tutorial will explain these steps in Windows 10 platform. If user has questions on other platform. Leave your comment below and we will try to figure out.

Software Part:

  • Pinguino community has developed a new installer to ease the installation of IDE. Goto to download NSIS installer for windows.
  • Double-click the installer. Select preference in language and hit “Install“.
  • When Python installer pop-up during the installation, hit “Next” until installation completed.
  • For Windows 10 user, installation stopped when trying yo install “Git-Python“. We believe there is some bugs for installer for Windows 10 because we don’t see same issue in Windows 7.


  • So manual installation for “Git-Python” needed for Windows 10 user.
  • Goto and click “Download Zip” on the right.
  • Extract it to directory “C:\Python27\Lib\site-packages“.
  • Now, hit “Windows” button on keyboard, then key-in “powershell” to search for Windows Powershell apps.


  • When Powershell pop-up, key-in $env:path=“$env:Path;C:\Python27”.
  • Next, change directory to “cd C:\Python27\Lib\site-packages\GitPython-master“.
  • Type “python install” and hit enter to start install “Git-Python“.
  • After installation completed, click “Cancel” on Pinguino installer and re-open installer by double click the installer.
  • User will see now installer no longer stop at Git-Python error code. But it could stop at other Python package installation.
  • Repeat manual installation above for package following:
  • After PyUSB installation, Pinguino installer will keep install other package, install all  components when pop-up.
  • Installer will ask user whether to install Pinguino compiler for 8-bits PIC. Click “Yes“. It is optional for 32-bits PIC Pinguino compiler.
  • Installer will then ask whether want to install Pinguino driver. Press “Yes“. Another pop-up will instruct user to connect Pinguino Board, ignore this step by click “OK“.
  • LibUSB-win32 driver installer will pop-up. Complete the installation.
  • Now, Pinguino IDE installation completed and ready to use.


  • User may proceed to do prerequisite in hardware part.
