Environment Python 3.5 unavailable RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have just installed Visual Studio on my new laptop and loaded one of my projects (previously created on another computer) only to see that I am getting an error saying Environment Python 3.5 is unavailable. I went to my Python Environments and it's indeed unavailable and greyed out. Can anyone please advise what I need to do? Do I need to reinstall something - mind you, I am not very technical, I have created a Django project based on an online tutorial from MS Virtual Academy, following the guidelines to the letter but I don't quite understand how this is set up.

    I will be grateful for any tips.
