Elastalert on windows


#1

hi

i've installed all the needed python files etc but when i do a pip install elastalert i get this, I suspect this is because the python environment can not "see" the visual c ++ installation ?

how do i fix this

Hey there, this forum is for discussion around Elastic Stack components only, so you might not get much answer here for Elastalert. I suggest that you try a more general discussion forum like StackOverflow or maybe contact the authors directly.
