I found this link in the Python Developer’s Guide, and I have been following the instructions to get started:
In the “Install tools and dependencies” section, I have an error in the last step. When I type “PCbuild\get_externals.bat” in the Command Prompt within the Python directory, I get the following message:
File “”, line 1
SyntaxError: unexpected character after line continuation character”
I am planning to open the PCBuild\pcbuild.sln solution in Visual Studio after installing the tools and dependencies.
