I m trying to save plotly image to then assemble them in a pdf report.
I understand the plotly 4.00 version made this possible offline.
But Orca gives me the couldn’t not find the executable reply (see below):
Which is weird because the orca.exe folder is listed in PATH.
I work on Windows in a company with a firewall so i need 100% full offline program… ( I assume when forum talk about orca server this is still fully local right ?)
Not sure what I’m missing.
Is there a simpler way to save an image ?

The orca executable is required to export figures as static images,
but it could not be found on the system path.
Searched for executable ‘C:\Users\P885880\AppData\Local\Programs\orca’ on the following path:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Orca\
If you haven’t installed orca yet, you can do so using conda as follows:
$ conda install -c plotly plotly-orca
Alternatively, see other installation methods in the orca project README at
After installation is complete, no further configuration should be needed.
If you have installed orca, then for some reason plotly.py was unable to
locate it. In this case, set the
property to the full path of your orca executable. For example:
>>> plotly.io.orca.config.executable = '/path/to/orca'
After updating this executable property, try the export operation again.
If it is successful then you may want to save this configuration so that it
will be applied automatically in future sessions. You can do this as follows:
