    Hello. I've tried repeatedly to install geofinder through pip3 in the command prompt. I can get Python 3.8 installed successfully. When I run the command "pip3 install geofinder --upgrade" cmd tells me it is successfully installed but it is no where to be found, except when I installed python straight onto C instead of into Program Files or my user account. I made sure Comodo trusted Python but turned it off during my last attempt, then checked the windows event logs. I can see each step of the python install but nothing regarding geofinder. A search of the hard drive comes up empty too. So, even though cmd tells me it is installing, windows doesn't see or recognize it. I made sure to set the path to Python and it's Scripts folders in user environment variables too. I carried everything out with admin privileges. The geofinder. exe should be in ...Phython38\Scripts, Unidecode and Phonetics folders should be in ...Phython38\Lib\site-packages. They were when I installed Phython at C:\ and I could run geofinder. The problem was it wouldn't carry out what it needed to do. I know of one person that successfully carried this out in Windows 10 64 bit Program Files and followed his steps exactly, but failed. Any ideas where my problem may lie?
