Hi all, I have been using pipenv for a long time but after reading on the subject, Virtualenv, decided to switch to it. However, I am facing an issue when I walk through Wing´s Project Guide: The creation stops around halfway and give the error message:

"Failed to start process to create virtualenv pip is missing from the virtualenv and could not be upgraded failed to start process to install packages"

Any help that shed some light over it is highly appreciated.

All the best, Dennis

Could you submit a bug report from Wing's Help menu and include the log?

There is a problem in Wing 8.0.4.1 and earlier that prevents the Packages tool from updating if using pip 21.3. This will be fixed in the next release and can be worked around by replacing src/external/pipdeptree.py in the Wing installation with the latest from https://github.com/naiquevin/pipdeptree

However, I'm not seeing failure to create a virtualenv in that case so I think that is a separate issue. Seeing another bug report right after trying to and failing to create a virtualenv may show us what is going wrong.
