I have anaconda installed on my Win 7 machine with a GTX1070.
I have been trying to install tensorflow gpu version for the past hour with no luck. I followed the tutorials on the tensorflow website to no success. They ask for you to install CUDA 8.0 and Cudll 6.0 which I do. I then add the location of cudnn64_6.dll, cudart64_80.dll and the libnvvp folder to my path variables. I then set up a virtual environment in conda and run the following command:
(tensorflow)C:> pip install --ignore-installed --upgrade tensorflow-gpu
I believe when I do this, it installs tensorflow 1.5 which seems to require CUDA tools 9.0 because I get an error saying that cudart64_80.dll cannot be found. So I update my CUDA tools to 9.0 and download the corresponding Cuda library. I then change my path variables. Now I dont get any missing dll errors however, I am now faced with the following error
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'absl'
Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I can do from here on?
