Not able to install DSS due virtualenv error

Not able to install DSS due virtualenv error
Hi Everyone,

I am new to Python and Dataiku, I am trying to install Dataiku using following command

dataiku-dss-4.2.0/ -d ./DATA_DIR -p 11000

But getting error

ERROR: The executable /data5/dataiku/DATA_DIR/bin/python is not functioning
ERROR: It thinks sys.prefix is u'/usr' (should be u'/data5/dataiku/DATA_DIR')
ERROR: virtualenv is not compatible with this system or executable

We have Anaconda install on the machine earlier.

I have tried options like

pip uninstall virtualenv

conda install virtualenv

But I am still getting error, As long as I can debug.

Please help.

Anaconda is incompatible with virtualenv

You can either:
* Install DSS in conda mode by adding the "-C" flag to the installer
* Change your PATH so that the "python2.7" command points to the regular Python instead of Anaconda Python

Please see for more details
