I'm new at python (version of python 3.7.7) and I'm trying to run a finished project, I imported everything but tensorflow is not working the error is shown down below:

Traceback (most recent call last):   File
line 64, in <module>

This problem is related to version. Follow the below given steps.

Hello, thank u for ur help. I don't have anaconda can this be applicable using pip only?


You can do with pip as well. The problem is with the version. You can use the below steps.

  • Uninstall the current version of Tensorflow.

$ pip uninstall tensorflow
  • Reinstall tensorflow 1.15
$ pip install tensorflow==1.15

I tried the following commands it didn't work :

pip uninstall tensorflow 
pip install tensorflow==1.15

I uninstalled python 3.7.7 and installed 3.6 and I tried again it didn't work, it's really weird.

Did you restart your command line after you installed it? Also, check the python version with the command.
no i didnt, how do i restart the command line and yes i checked the python version with the command python --version it's 3.6.0

It happened to me as well. I tried multiple ways to install Tensorflow in my own system. But it shows me a similar type of error. It most probably to the environment-related. You can give it one more try. Just uninstall python and TensorFlow and related packages. And try with another version.
