Error when importing TensorFlow in Python on Windows

I am running Python 2.7.10 and I successfully installed TensorFlow, using pip install https://storage.googleapis.com/tensorflow/mac/tensorflow-0.5.0-py2-none-any.whl.

When I run the python interpreter and attempt to import the tensorflow module, I get the following error:

>>> import tensorflow as tf
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
  File "C:\Users\Or\AppData\Local\Enthought\Canopy\User\lib\site-packages\tensorflow\__init__.py", line 4, in <module>

    import _pywrap_tensorflow
ImportError: No module named _pywrap_tensorflow

Judging by the paths in the output, it looks like you are trying to run TensorFlow on Windows. The package that you have installed is a Mac OS X binary distribution of TensorFlow.

Unfortunately, Windows is not currently supported by TensorFlow, and it is unlikely to be supported before its build system (Bazel) adds Windows support. There is some discussion of progress towards a Windows version on this GitHub issue, and an unsupported contribution that builds TensorFlow using CMake on Windows.
