Locust 1.4.X@win32 needs win32api & win32console

See original GitHub issue

This is not an issue per se, but how to take care of one:

If you use [ana]conda and install locust via:

conda create --name locust385 -y python=3.8.5
conda activate locust385
pip install locust

You might get an error like the one below:

  File "d:\users\.\anaconda3\envs\locust385\lib\site-packages\locust\", line 6, in <module>
    from win32api import STD_INPUT_HANDLE
ImportError: DLL load failed while importing win32api: The specified module could not be found.

All you need to do is to copy these 2 DLLs


from D:\Users\.\Anaconda3\envs\locust385\Lib\site-packages\pywin32_system32 to D:\Users\.\Anaconda3\envs\locust385\Scripts

Alternatively you can do:

pip uninstall pywin32
conda install pywin32
