Cannot use requests py module in my extension for CREATE

I created a simple extension and loaded it in CREATE 2023.3.3-rc.15 (with the help of link_app.bat and startup.bat).
I want to use requests py module in the extension.
For this I modified extension.toml and added lines:

requirements = ['requests']

Also, I added ‘import requests’ to the extension .py file and after saving it I saw a message in console:

I have also installed requests py module with the command ‘pip install requests’.
Please advise on how to resolve this.
Thank you.

I found an answer. CREATE uses it’s own python which is located at ‘app\kit\python\python.exe’.
‘app’ is a folder link created in your extension’s folder after running link_app.bat.
So, I started terminal at folder ‘app\kit\python’ and there are files like:


I run a command
python.exe -m pip install requests
and this allowed me to get requests module into CREATE’s python.
After that all works as expected.
