We have noticed few common issues for users working on Win VM. Hopefully this list will help new users having similar problems.
- Access to data from Windows machine:
The data is ahared through the Linux VM. You do not need to work on Linux, just copy the data out of it. Please see this post on how to copy data so it is available to Windows VM as well: Not able to get starter notebook
Please read the workspace homepage (README) on details where to find the shared drive
- Installing packages using pip in Jupyter Notebook fails:
This may be due to proxy issue. It is sometimes caused by users interrupting VM start up scripts that make proxy settings when machine boots up. Please restart your VM, and make sure to allow start up scripts to execute. Once they do the proxy should be setup and internet access to allowed sites open.
- Install Anaconda:
Please see instructions here: https://knowledgebase.aridhia.io/article/installing-anaconda-and-running-jupyter-notebooks-on-the-virtual-machine/#windows
Anaconda repo website is on the allow list and you can access it from the VM browser: https://repo.anaconda.com/archive/
Please let me know if you encounter any further issues.
