When trying to connect my Google Colab notebook to a local runtime I get
Unable to connect to the runtime. The
Troubleshoot link is not helpful as it assumes Linux (uses bash commands).
This post "Unable to connect to the local runtime" in google colab also assumes Linux, as does the official Colab instructions.
This is what I did:
1) I installed Anaconda for Windows as described here
2) Started a
Jupyter Notebook (Anaconda3). In a terminal Window it wrote the link
3) Started a Colab notebook, selected
Connect to local runtime and copied above link into the
Backend URL field.
