Solution to "Can't find Python executable "python", you can set the PYTHON env variable."

I was just installing particle-cli on a new machine and got this error:

Error: Can't find Python executable "python", you can set the PYTHON env variable.

Super obvious what is going on – you need to install python or if you have installed you need to set the env variable.

I installed Python 2.7.10 and selected the following option.

and that will put Python in your path

Launch a new cmd prompt and you should be all set.

Hope this helps.
