# ImportError: cannot import name NUMPY_MKL

I am trying to run the following simple code

```
import scipy
scipy.test()
```

But I am getting the following error

```
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
File "C:\Python27\lib\site-packages\spyderlib\widgets\externalshell\sitecustomize.py", line 586, in runfile
execfile(filename, namespace)
File "C:/Users/Mustafa/Documents/My Python Code/SpectralGraphAnalysis/main.py", line 8, in <module>
import scipy
File "C:\Python27\lib\site-packages\scipy\__init__.py", line 61, in <module>
from numpy._distributor_init import NUMPY_MKL # requires numpy+mkl
ImportError: cannot import name NUMPY_MKL
```

I am using python 2.7 under windows 10.

I have installed `scipy`

but that does not seem to solve the problem

Any help is appreciated.

If you look at the line which is causing the error, you'll see this:

```
from numpy._distributor_init import NUMPY_MKL # requires numpy+mkl
```

This line comment states the dependency as `numpy+mkl`

(`numpy`

with **Intel Math Kernel Library**). This means that you've installed the `numpy`

by `pip`

, but the `scipy`

was installed by precompiled archive, which expects `numpy+mkl`

.

This problem can be easy solved by installation for `numpy+mkl`

from whl file from here.
