The EnvironmentError is caused by Windows. I suspect that it is connected with the path 
length limit of 256 characters imposed by Windows. I suggest you select a shorted path for 
the virtual environment. Following is an example.

python -m venv c:\users\tamer\eric_venv
c:\users\tamer\eric_venv\scripts\python.exe -m pip install eric-ide

I tried to install Eric6 through virtual environment, i am getting the attached 
error, note that the missing file which is mentioned in the error message  
already exists in the folder.

The screencapture tells exactly what is wrong on your system. You are missing write 
permission to the directory you want to install eric6. In this situation I am recommending 
to create a Python virtual environment and to install eric6 there. The eric web site gives 
more details.
