Update Feature Request: Installation Guide for the Object Detection Model for Windows #1934
Describe the problem
Installation guide for the object detection model is written for Ubuntu OS. Is it not supported by windows?
eg. the guide includes commands like "protoc object_detection/protos/*.proto --python_out=." that are not Windows commands.
I have gotten it to work with a virtual Ubuntu machine but believe it would be useful for the community if it was made simpler to use and install on Windows as well
PS. https://stackoverflow.com/questions/44789493/tensorflow-object-detection-api-on-windows This is a stack overflow similar issue with an answer that could be included in the Installation guide?

Windows has a problem with the *.proto and trying to pass in multiple files into protoc.exe
Here's a quick script, just rename the extension to .bat and place it in /master-models/research and then run the file from the command line.
This assumes that you have the protoc.exe already in your path.
For the environment variable step you can type the following in the /master-models/research directory:
The %cd% is the equivalent of pwd in Windows. This also assumes that you already have PYTHONPATH defined.

@notsmartenough We had a very strange situation here as well. Have you tried installing/copying the respective folders to your environment?
I finally had no errors when I uninstalled a lot of things and installed them again along with protoc 3.4. I was doing this for object detection using tensorflow API but now I face this issue when I try to run their tutorial template. Also
