Trouble installing infoblox-client Python module to 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 ( ... error
error: subprocess-exited-with-error

× python 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":
[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.
