If the automated process of adding the MinGW path to the environment and the Python path as described above does not work, it is recommended to try the traditional method. Here is a refined version of this statement:
If the automated setup process for adding the MinGW path is not successful, please follow these steps to manually add the path using the traditional method:

1. Open the Start menu and search for "Environment Variables".
2. Click on "Edit the system environment variables".
3. In the System Properties window, click on the "Environment Variables" button.
4. Under "System Variables", scroll down and find the "Path" variable.
5. Click on "Edit" and add the path of MinGW (e.g., "C:\MinGW\bin").
6. Click OK on all open windows to save the changes.
7. Open a new command prompt or terminal window to verify that the MinGW path is recognized by the system.

By following these steps, you should be able to manually add the MinGW path to the environment variables and ensure that it is recognized by the system.
