Hi, I'm trying to get python working with Oasis Montaj, following the instructions from here...

I've installed the latest Anaconda package as stated in the instructions, but then when i came to install the Geosoft python package I get this:
C:\Users\sc>python.exe -V
Python 3.6.0 :: Anaconda 4.3.1 <64-bit>
C:\Users\sc>c:\ProgramData\Anaconda3\Scripts\pip.exe install geosoft
Collecting geosoft
Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement geosoft (from versions: )
No matching distribution found for geosoft

Checking here ( is looks to me there are only versions for python 3.4 and 3.5? Is that right, or am I doing something wrong? If so, do you recommend stripping Anaconda and finding an old version with 3.5, or is there any other way? Thanks, Sam.

    Hi Sam,

    Our next release will have Python 3.6 support. This should be available soon (likely within the next 2 weeks). In the mean time you could do one of 3 things:

    1. Use a distribution with Python 3.5
    2. Add a conda VirtualEnv with Python 3.5 (
    3. Use install with our 9.2 pre-release from:

    Note that some API calls will not be available when using the 9.2 pre-release with the current released versions (9.1 or older) of Oasis montaj.
