I am not sure whether this is the right place to ask this
question. Please let me know if it isn't.
I am trying to install psycopg2 in my windows machine for
connecting with the PostgreSQL server.
Since there is no binary executable*, I am trying to build my own
- and I am facing this issue.
cannot find -lpq
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
error: command 'gcc' failed with exit status 1
After a little bit of googling, I found that this can be solved
by -L<directory name> while linking - but I am not specifically
linking the code. Rather, I am installing by doing the following -
python.exe setup.py build
python.exe setup.py install
So, I cannot find a place to include the -L option too.
Can somebody help me on this? I have been investigating this for
the last 4 days - and now I cannot see any further way out.
*p.s -> I did find one binary in
But the licensing is GPL and I wont be able to use it (I am doing
coding for proprietary systems)
