I am trying to use tensorflow and keras for one of the tasks but while importing the tensorflow I am getting the below error. Till now I have removed the virtual which I have created previously and then created the new virtual environment again, but still I am getting the same error. Any leads would be appreciated. Here is the command below which I am running.

import tensorflow as tf

Here is the error I am getting

runfile('C:/Users/Lenovo/.spyder-py3/temp.py', wdir='C:/Users/Lenovo/.spyder-py3')

Below is the configuration of my system.

  • $\begingroup$ I check tensorflow github, and there this issue is explained. Upgrading to 1.15 resolved the issue. check it here - github.com/tensorflow/tensorflow/issues/35208 $\endgroup$ – Saandeep Sreerambatla Feb 18 at 12:43
  • $\begingroup$ @SaandeepSreerambatla I have upgraded the tensorflow to 1.15 but still its not working still showing the same error. I am using tensorflow not tensorflow-gpu. $\endgroup$ – manpreet singh Feb 19 at 5:12

I resolved the issue by creating new environment with tensorflow by the below two commands:

conda create -n tensorflow_env tensorflow
conda activate tensorflow_env
