Error ocurred while updating
Assuming it doesn't, please describe in detail how you installed Keras and any other related packages (with just Thanks for your detailed response, @CAM-Gerlach.
Yes, I confirm that I got the below error as shown by you: An error ocurred while starting the kernel: b'' I have not switched any options in spyder.
According to @nadianaji's report and the Stack Overflow question I referenced above, it seems related to Tensorflow, Keras or Theano.
@ccordoba12 Sure, I can try to repro it by that method after I get an environment set up, but if you're after the cause of the message in general rather than a particular manifestation of it (I'm not sure its actually one specific error, but a symptom of various potentially different lower-level problems), I have at least one semi-consistent way to trigger it, as I have encountered this error message before on other issues.
If so, can you provide the conda update -n base -c defaults conda conda create -n theano-test python=3.6 activate theano-test conda install spyder-kernels=1 mingw libpython pip install git git://github.com/Theano/pip install git git://github.com/fchollet/to be the one in the Theano environment.I also fixed the other problem that triggered the error (over in #7357 ) and couldn't repro it there either.The one thing is it seems every instance of it has to do with some low-level compiled code, either from Theano/Keras, Tensorflow, or MKL/Open MP.If Spyder does not start at all and before submitting a bug report, please try to reset settings to defaults by running Spyder with the command line option '--reset': this command will remove all your Spyder configuration files located in 'C:\Users\praveen.spyder-py3').If Spyder still fails to launch, you should consult our comprehensive Troubleshooting Guide, which when followed carefully solves the vast majority of crashes; also, take the time to search for known bugs or discussions matching your situation before submitting a report to our issue tracker. Tried 'spyder --reset' but no use, it still crashed.
