Failure to install Python-sdk with pip

I'm trying to insatll Python-SDK on my Windows 7 machine, using the following command:

pip install constantcontact

and get an error message indicating that the "" file cannot be found. Everything else seems to be in the constantcontact directory, except this file. Any idea why? (Also noted that the backslashes are duplicated, but figured that was just an output aberration.)


No such file or directory: 'c:\\users\\steve\\appdata\\local\\temp\\pip-build-steve\\constantcontact\\'






Unfortunately I don't have much personal experience with python and the installation of packages. The best work-around to this is likely to grab the code directly from GitHub here:


I'll also see if I can find some more information about the error and what can be done with it over the course of this week.

Thanks, Elijah,


That's what I did, and it worked fine, using this command:

pip install git+
