I don’t have an intro here 😉

Before you can install Stable Diffusion on your local Windows machine, you will need a couple of things:
- Instal GIT – command line GIT is used by the installer script to download some stuff from GitHub
- Install Python programming language – at the time of writing this, version 3.10.x is required as the machine learning framework PyTorch is not compatible with the latest 3.11.x
- Change Execution Policies – your Windows will spit out errors or stop certain things from running if you don’t
Check PyTorch compatibility with Python for Windows on this page and download the correct version of the Python installer from this page: https://www.python.org/downloads/.
Make sure to allow the Python installer to update the system PATH.
After installation, open PowerShell (Click Win🪟 > Search > powershell) and run the “python –version” command to check if Python installed correctly. You should see something like this: “Python 3.10.6”. Numbers will be different, depending on the version you have installed. If you get any errors, that means Python was not installed correctly.
