I have previously used WHL (wheel) files to install various Python packages. But, it seems there's no such file for NLTK. Any workaround for this please?
The problem is I don't have access to install or *.exe files. Neither PIP3 works because of some reason (firewall i believe!)
NewConnectionError('pip._vendor.requests.packages.urllib3.connection.VerifiedHTTPSConnection object: Failed to establish a new connection: [WinError 10061] No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it',)': /simple/nltk/
Just discovered, there was a Zip installation file. And tried it. Had a dependency on "singledispatch-126.96.36.199-py2.py3-none-any.whl" but was able to install that being a WHL file. Got a success message -

Still i wasn't able to do
Import NLTK. But i noticed an Egg file in the Python folder.

Still i'm unable to proceed. But the hunt is still on ...
