conda update -y -n base -c defaults conda
conda activate
conda create -y --name CloudComPy39 python=3.9
   # --- erase previous env if existing
conda activate CloudComPy39
conda config --add channels conda-forge
conda config --set channel_priority strict
conda install -y "boost=1.72" "cgal=5.0" cmake "ffmpeg=4.3" "gdal=3.3" "jupyterlab=3.2" "matplotlib=3.5" "mysql=8.0" "numpy=1.22" "opencv=4.5" "openmp=8.0" "pcl=1.11" "pdal=2.3" "psutil=5.9" "qt=5.12" "scipy=1.8" "sphinx_rtd_theme=1.0" "spyder=5.2" "tbb=2021.5" "tbb-devel=2021.5" "xerces-c=3.2"
