I am installing for the first time on a Windows machine. I first installed Python 3.6 and verified PIP is working fine. However, in following the instructions to install using PIP, I get the following error:

C:\Askbot>pip install askbot Collecting askbot Downloading askbot-0.10.2.tar.gz (8.1MB) 100% |████████████████████████████████| 8.1MB 156kB/s Complete output from command python egg_info: Traceback (most recent call last): File "<string>", line 1, in <module> File "C:\Users\MyUser\AppData\Local\Temp\pip-build-eukbfsgi\askbot\", line 135 ********************""" ^ SyntaxError: Missing parentheses in call to 'print'

---------------------------------------- Command "python egg_info"

failed with error code 1 in C:\Users\MyUser\AppData\Local\Temp\pip-build-eukbfsgi\askbot\

No, Askbot (as of v0.10.2/ March 2017) does not support Pyton 3, please install latest Python 2.7 and try again.

@Evgeny Is there any plan to support Python 3?
