Ask questionsPython 3.8: ImportError: DLL load failed while importing _psycopg: The specified module could not be found.
TL; DR: update pip. See this comment
I get this error when trying to import psycopg2 in Python 3.8 on Windows 10. I already tried reinstalling (both psycopg2 and psycopg2-binary) and even reinstalling Postgres. Seems to work fine on Python 3.7.
>>> import psycopg2 Traceback (most recent call last): File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module> File "D:\Documents\Programming\blokken\.venv\lib\site-packages\psycopg2\__init__.py", line 50, in <module> from psycopg2._psycopg import ( # noqa ImportError: DLL load failed while importing _psycopg: The specified module could not be found.

Nope, looks like this won't get fixed until Appveyor adds Python 3.8 support. I had to just downgrade back to Python 3.7 for now. :/
