I have been trying to download dlib on my system from past one week and I am not able to download it using pip or the manual process I also have looked on several questions asked here and checked the required processes like.

but still, I was unsuccessful ... I need to learn about opencv and dlib so please help me anyone ... and my device properties which I think might not be the problem.

Installed C and C++ compilers and add them to a path.

Installed visual studio 2015 (VS2015) down-loader and 2017 both

Installed all the dependencies through VS2015.(support for C, C++, MS Build, Windows SDK, etc)
