filename.whl is not supported wheel on this platform


cp33 means CPython 3.3 you need scipy‑0.15.1‑cp27‑none‑win_amd64.whl instead.


This can also be caused by using an out-of-date pip with a recent wheel file.

I was very confused, because I was installing numpy-1.10.4+mkl-cp27-cp27m-win_amd64.whl (from here), and it is definitely the correct version for my Python installation (Windows 64-bit Python 2.7.11). I got the "not supported wheel on this platform" error.

Upgrading pip with python -m pip install --upgrade pip solved it.


I had the same problem while installing scipy-0.17.0-cp35-none-win_amd64.whl and my Python version is 3.5. It returned the same error message:

 scipy-0.17.0-cp35-none-win_amd64.whl is not supported wheel on this platform.

I realized that amd64 is not about my Windows, but about the Python version. Actually I am using a 32 bit Python on a 64 bit Windows. Installing the following file solved the issue:

scipy-0.17.0-cp35-none-win32.whl
