Kiteconnect3 Upgrade

As per the following link, I am trying to install kiteconnect3

Following procedure is not working
pip install kiteconnect --upgrade --pre

Following error is coming multiple attempts,

kiteconnect old library is already loaded in my system
I am using Windows7 64bit version
I have loaded Anaconda (64Bit) python (default) and python 3.5.2 (32bit)
Visual C++ 15/17 already loaded on system

Need your help. Please support.

do we need to run following command to upgrade to Kiteconnect3 ? Is there any other steps possible?

pip install kiteconnect --upgrade --pre

Why Installation is failing after " error: Microsoft Visual C++ 14.0 is required." ?

    The pykiteconnect 3.7.0 beta uses a third-party library for Kite Ticker which requires twisted packages to be installed as well. The twisted has a dependency on Microsoft Visual C++.
    You need to first install twisted and then upgrade.

    You can refer to this blog-post.

    @sujith which part of the documentation clearly describes the process for upgrading to latest version? Even on github "pip install kiteconnect --upgrade --pre" is mentioned. Many of us may be new to programming but have sufficient idea on installing packages. Even to queries , replies do not point to the complete procedure of upgrading step by step ,mentioned at one place. At least I could not find. Refer to this reply -"Hi @darkknight ,
    Yeah, you need to install Microsoft Visual C++ 14.0 and then install twisted frame work(go through this thread) separately and then install kite connect python client." . I do not find "install twisted" mentioned anywhere in docs or related places.

    Makes sense. We will update pykiteconnect's readme.
