You need to set up the path variable.

  1. To do this, you should first Install python. Here is the link that will take you to the official website from where you can download python https://www.python.org/downloads/ 
  2. After this, install it on your PC. Look for the location where PYTHON has been installed on your PC using the following command on your command prompt: cmd python. 
  3. Then go to advanced system settings and add new variable and name it as PYTHON_NAME and paste the copied path. 
  4. Look for the path variable, select it's value and select edit 
  5. Add a semicolon towards the end of the value if it's not present and then type %PYTHON_HOME%

This should solve the error.
