We recently gave the SQL lesson for the first time, and I wanted to share some of the installation issues (which took an hour to fix) we had.

  • Windows, learner had installed Anaconda, but sqlite was not installed. Solution: open Anaconda Prompt, write ‘conda install sqlite=3’
  • same problem, but above solution didn’t work as learner did not have permission to install in the Anaconda3 folder (even though they were able to install Anaconda)
  • Running Windows installer was blocked by antivirus software; solutions: variable, ideally learner can temporarily disable the antivirus software or create an exception (or designated trusted folder for downloads); alternatively provide installer on USB sticks
  • Windows 10 (maybe also8 and 7), learner using SWC windows installer: sqlite3 is not added to PATH-variable; solution: manually add

I could maybe add that some learners called for some instructions to test if everything is running properly.

Yes, the windows installer for SQLite that is on the workshop website template does not add SQLite to the path, nor does it tell where the app is installed, making it unusable for learners. We were forced to grab a binary from and place it in the working directory. This ate up about 20 minutes of workshop time trying to resolve.
