Environment construction procedure to operate chrome without installing python on Windows (using selenium)


There was a scene where it would be better to automate the browser at work. However, Windows lent by the company cannot freely install software. Therefore, it was necessary to automate without installing the software. So, I downloaded Python from Zip and installed Selenium there to build the execution environment. The procedure at that time is described below. (It may be difficult in an environment where the proxy server is restricted.)


1. Download the python zip

1-1. Access https://www.python.org/


1-2. Downloads → Click Windows


1-3. Click the latest version


1-4. Scroll to the bottom and click "Windows x86-64 embeddable zip file"


1-5. Extract Zip to an appropriate folder (this time, extract it to C: \ 00_myspace \ tool )

Deployment target
Deployment destination

2. Rewrite "python38._pth" so that selenium can be installed

2-1. Delete the comment out of import

Change before


After change


3. Download the chrome driver

3-1. Check the chrome version


3-2. Access https://sites.google.com/a/chromium.org/chromedriver/


3-3. Click the same version of Chrome you confirmed (this time, select 85.0.4183.87)


3-4. Click chromedriver_win32.zip


3-5. Create a driver folder + version folder in the python folder you extracted earlier, and store the downloaded driver in it.

C:\00_myspace\tool\python-3.8.5-embed-amd64\driver\850418387 image.png

4. Install selenium

4-1. Start powershell


4-2. Move to the folder where python is installed


4-3. Download pip with wget "https://bootstrap.pypa.io/get-pip.py" -O "get-pip.py"

Command: wget "https://bootstrap.pypa.io/get-pip.py" -O "get-pip.py" image.png

4-4. Run python get-pip.py (maybe you don't have to)


4-5. Start the command prompt, move to the folder where python is installed, and execute the following command

Command: python -m get-pip install selenium image.png

4-6. Create a folder in the python folder to store the program for python

4-7. Store the sample file (chrome.py)


import time
from selenium import webdriver

#Load the driver
driver = webdriver.Chrome('./driver/850418387/chromedriver')
#Set google URL
#1 second sleep (There is no point in putting sleep. I put it for technical notes)
#Specify search box
search_box = driver.find_element_by_name('q')
#search_box.send_keys('Narita Dream Farm Auto Campground')
#Search word setting in the search box
#Search execution
#Select the first search result
search_box = driver.find_element_by_class_name('LC20lb')
#Get a list of classes specified in yahoo news etc.
search_box = driver.find_elements_by_class_name('_2bBRLhI5ZpVYu0tuHZEFrn')
#Click yahoo news
print('Exit the browser after 10 seconds.')
#10 seconds sleep
#Exit (close the browser)


5. Execute (eg search yahoo on google and go to yahoo news page)

5-1. At the command prompt, move to the Python folder and execute the following command

Command: python ./pyfile/chrome.py

The above is the procedure for automating without installing python on Windows.
