I have tried installing on Odoo v 8 on Windows 7 and Windows 10. When I do a pip  install evdev it throws error.

"The 'linux/input.h' and 'linux/input-event-codes.h' include files

are missing. You will have to install the kernel header files in

order to continue:"

I cannot find a means to install Kernel headers as apt-get does not work on windows cmd.

Please help!!

Python evdev is only working on linux system.

This package provides bindings to the generic input event interface in Linux only
