Trouble installing infoblox-client Python module on Windows 10

First, I have never had any trouble installing this module until this last time. I've installed it before on previous versions of Python with no trouble – Windows or Linux.

 

The error starts with this:

 

Building wheels for collected packages: netifaces
Building wheel for netifaces (setup.py) ... error
error: subprocess-exited-with-error

× python setup.py bdist_wheel did not run successfully.
│ exit code: 1
╰─> [5 lines of output]
running bdist_wheel
running build
running build_ext
building 'netifaces' extension
error: Microsoft Visual C++ 14.0 or greater

 

...

 

I know this has to do with the Python build tools but I don't understand what workaround I may have. Here's how the pip install failure ended:

 

building 'netifaces' extension
error: Microsoft Visual C++ 14.0 or greater is required. Get it with "Microsoft C++ Build Tools": https://visualstudio.microsoft.com/visual-cpp-build-tools/
[end of output]

note: This error originates from a subprocess, and is likely not a problem with pip.
error: legacy-install-failure

× Encountered error while trying to install package.
╰─> netifaces

 

Any suggestions for a workaround would be appreciated. I would really like to have some of these scripts run from my workstation and not always have to send them over to our Linux VM.

I've also had the same issues on windows install. I used this stackoverflow page to help install Visual Studio builds.  https://stackoverflow.com/questions/64261546/python-cant-install-packages

This cleared the C++ error, but still unable to configure netifaces.

 

I then had to use python 3.8 since 3.10 is not compatible.  I found a Github on this, I can't find it now.  But 3.10 is not compatible at the moment. So I created a virtual enviorment with 3.8

 

After that I was able to install the module in the virtual inviorment.

Im aware this github issue in on Linux, but it might help someone having issues with the infoblox-client module.
