Psychopy installation breaks OpenSesame
Hi! I'm doing an experiment in which the plan is to show two stills on the display and subsequently animate one of the stills (with an .mp4 if that's possible). Now I found on these forums that PsychoPy would be preferable for coding this. As the computers used at the lab run Windows, I'm trying to run this in Windows myself as well. I'm using the 'opensesame_3.2.7-py3.6-win64-2.exe' for good measure.
If I follow the guide at https://osdoc.cogsci.nl/3.2/manual/environment/ and use this to install PsychoPy via the Debug Window, I always end up with the error 'PermissionError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: 'C:\\Program Files (x86)\\OpenSesame\\Lib\\site-packages\\PyQt5\\Qt.pyd'' This is, apparently, because PsychoPy wants to replace the Qt-file. This won't work, because the OpenSesame window is using it. If I then run something along the lines of '."C:\Program Files (x86)\OpenSesame\Scripts\pip" install psychopy' it ends up installing - but then I am greeted with the error as added to this post ('error.png'). It therefore seems to be impossible at this time to run PsychoPy on Windows 10, is that correct? I'm using the pip that was installed by OpenSesame, not the most up to date version, if that matters.
What would now be the best way to proceed? The goal is to have, for 3 seconds, a still next to a video. The still could also be a video (but just 1 frame for 3 seconds) if that makes programming any easier. FWIW, I have re-installed OpenSesame 3 times by now, so I don't suppose that'll help fixing it. System-wide I'm running Python 3.7.2 and pip 19.1. Thanks in advance for any replies!
