aws CLI install window

I am having trouble installing the aws CLI for windows.

I am following these instructions here

It requires that I have Python 3.6.2 but I have Python 2.7.6 when I run python --version

After I run

 pip install --user --upgrade awscli

and then try to run

aws --version

nothing happens.

I tried setting my path in Environment Variables but it still won't work. After this, I tried to upgrade my python version by installing python 3.6 on their website, but my python version won't update when I run python --version.

Could this be that start of why I cant install the CLI?

    Have you gone through the steps on the amazon website? Python 2 and 3 are quite different from what I understand.

    https://docs.aws.amazon.com/cli/latest/userguide/installing.html

    The AWS script you are running is really just a python program. I recommend verifying install paths, and possibly use their bundled installer found on the page above, about half way down.

    At first make sure you have installed python3. Check it with command:

    Try to verify python version with command(on centos or redhat):

    $ rpm -qa|grep python3
    

    And then make sure python3 has been added to $PATH

    $python3 --version
    

    And I think you need to install pip3 for python3.X.

    $yum search python3|grep pip   
    

    And then install the package you need with command

    $ pip3 install --user --upgrade awscli

    Use this link to download and install AWSCLI Download the AWS CLI MSI installer for Windows

    then go to C:\Program Files\Amazon\AWSCLI or where-so-ever you have installed this and set the path in Environment variables.

    Cheers!
