Fix installation error in Anaconda

What is Anaconda?

Anaconda is the leading open data science platform powered by Python. The open source version of Anaconda is a high performance distribution of Python and R and includes over 100 of the most popular Python, R and Scala packages for data science.

The error reads as below:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:\Anaconda2\Lib\", line 164, in <module> main()
File "C:\Anaconda2\Lib\", line 150, in main
File "C:\Anaconda2\Lib\", line 94, in mk_menus
  err("Traceback:\n%s\n" % traceback.format_exc(20))
IOError: [Errno 9] Bad file descriptor

And the solution is:

Go to C:\Anaconda2\Lib (default path for Anaconda Lib installation) and type

..\python mkmenus
