This is the problem that the author encountered when installing PyTorch1.10 on the windows10 platform.

The author uses conda to install PyTorch1.10 gpu version instruction: conda install pytorch torchvision cudatoolkit=9.0 -c pytorch

Update python==3.6.7 or python==3.7.0 (I updated to python==3.6.7)

conda install python==3.6.7

It should be noted that if you installed it with python==3.6.0 before, if you upgrade to python==3.7.0, then PyTorch needs to be reinstalled.
