Issue installing wheel python package - "looks like a filename, but the file does not exist"

I'm trying to get started with IRIS for Health but every time I got to a step that asks me to install a .whl-package I cant continue. I'm getting an error that the file does not exist.

Here is the complete error message:

PS C:\Users\x\GIT\quickstarts-multimodel-python> pip install nativeAPI_wheel\irisnative-1.0.0-cp39-cp39m-win_amd64.whl    
WARNING: Requirement 'nativeAPI_wheel\\irisnative-1.0.0-cp39-cp39m-win_amd64.whl' looks like a filename, but the file does not exist
ERROR: irisnative-1.0.0-cp39-cp39m-win_amd64.whl is not a supported wheel on this platform.

Am I doing something wrong?


Kind regards

I've removed your images, with broken urls, could you update post with an error, you get

and command you use

So, actually I have no idea why this file is there, but it's something else, there should be another file like intersystems_irispython-3.2.0-py3-none-any.whl, and it should be installable

I'm not sure I understand your answer.
How would you suggest I solve my problem? Any idea what I could try?

My guess is that you try to use some outdated nativeapi drivers. <- outdate more than 3 years old
I encourage you to use this git for drivers :

If you are looking for python expérience on IRIS have a look at those git :

BTW : a more complete DB-API and SQL Alchemy support is under development
