Command Prompt / Anaconda Command Prompt not opening in Windows 11
I am doing a research project that involves me running terminals in the Anaconda Command Prompt. I was able to install and work the current version of Anaconda (4.12) and get the command prompt running there, but I had to depreciate my version of Anaconda to 4.2 so I can work on my project using Python 3.5. That version of Anaconda could not open the Anaconda Command Prompt or the Anaconda Navigator on my machine, so I tried reinstalling the current version of Anaconda after uninstalling 4.2; however, now I have the problem where the Anaconda Command Prompt can't open (but I've been able to run Anaconda Navigator). I tried doing the following things to see if I could fix this issue:
- Opening the Anaconda Command Prompt through the Windows Command Prompt; however, now I have the added problem of the Windows Command Prompt not opening (which I tried fixing in the steps below)
- Running the command prompt in Windows Safe Boot Mode. This method did open the command prompt, but it opened it up under the wrong letter drive. On this mode, I get the directory: X:\windows\system32 What confuses me is that I don't even have an X: drive on my machine.
- Trying to use some of the commands I was going to use in the command prompt in Powershell; however, when I opened powershell, I got an error message regarding Execution Policies. I was able to get the error fixed by changing some of the Execution Policies. I changed the execution policy on CurrentUser and LocalMachine to Unrestricted. This solved the problem on Powershell, but didn't fix the problem with opening the command prompt.
- Going back into the Safe Boot Mode Command Prompt and seeing if the letter drive had been fixed to the default C:. The letter drive is still X:.
I don't know what to do to fix this problem. I've tried many of the things I read online from windows and other forums, but so far they haven't worked.
