The orca executable is required to export figures as static images, but it could not be found on the system path

Running python on windows. Installed Orca using conda -c plotly plotly-orca to export static images as pdfs and I receive the following error.

The orca executable is required to export figures as static images,
but it could not be found on the system path.

Searched for executable ‘/path/to/orca’ on the following path:

If I run the following line:


I get:

I have no idea how to change the path as it suggests in the error message. Help??

This is my command to export static image:

pio.write_image(fig, ‘gantt_suma.png’, scale=3)
