[SOLVED] This might help if you have problems installing Scrapy, using PyCharm.

I couldn't install Scrapy properly until I had installed 'Build Tools for Visual Studio 2017'. Then I could install it, which I did with this window: https://gyazo.com/1c5d3707ac670e81bcf2ab1e91ad84d8 Build tools for visual studio 2017: https://visualstudio.microsoft.com/downloads/#build-tools-for-visual-studio-2017

This is not a question. Just thought I would leave this here in case someone else, in the future, has problems installing Scrapy
