Hello everyone, I meet a question, when I change the python interpreter in Spyder to another version python, it will show a "an error occurred while starting the kernel " if I open a new console window. Is anyone know how to solve this problem?

@bronzecraft What was the actual error was that was reported? Without that information, we can only blindly guess. Also, what version of Spyder are you using, on what OS, and what version of spyder-kernels did you have installed in the target environment?
@MekuanentMUluneh This is mentioned right in our Readme, and explained in more detail on our CONTRIBUTING Guide. In the future, please consult these basic resources first.

Hello, recently installed Anaconda, whenever I open the navigator and try and open Spyder an error is displayed stating "The ordinal 242 could not be located in the dynamic link library C:{User Path}\Anaconda3\Library\bin\mkl_intel_thread.dll" I can ope Jupyter Lab, Jupyter Notebook, and Qt Console, but not Spyder???

@accountantcoder This error is due to a one or more pieces of third-party software that installed a conflicting DLL directly into the System32 directory, which it is never supposed to do. This, in turn, makes Intel OpenMP not work correctly, which is needed by Intel MKL, which is loaded by NumPy, which is loaded by Matplotlib, which is loaded by Spyder. To fix this, upgrade to the latest version of the Anaconda Python interpreter that works around this problem (conda update python, or conda update python=3.6 if you need to stay on 3.6); if you're still having problems, rename (e.g. add .bak) or move any DLLs in System32 that contain the sequence mkl or iomp (e.g. mkl_core.dll, libiomp5md.dll) to resolve it. Thanks.

@accountantcoder Did you try updating Python first like I asked you to? To do so, open Anaconda prompt and paste the appropriate command I specified above. Furthermore, you can just rename the DLLs by adding a .bak instead of moving them out of system32.
