USD Windows Install

I am looking into installing USD on windows from the binaries kindly provided by nvidia.

Following the instructions in th readme, I seem to have everything in order. However I am getting the following error when trying to run usdcat as a test.

E:\downloads\usd-20-08-win64_py27_release\bin>usdcat E:\files\USD\Kitchen_set\Kitchen_set.usd
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "E:\downloads\usd-20-08-win64_py27_release\bin\usdcat", line 241, in <module>
    sys.exit(main())
  File "E:\downloads\usd-20-08-win64_py27_release\bin\usdcat", line 165, in main
    from pxr import Usd
  File "E:\downloads\usd-20-08-win64_py27_release\lib\python\pxr\Usd\__init__.py", line 24, in <module>
    from . import _usd
ImportError: DLL load failed: The specified module could not be found.

PATH and PYTHONPATH are both setup as required. PySide2 and PyOpenGL are installed.

Any pointers welcome.

it works just fine. You are missing something in your environment setup for sure.

r:\soft\usd\20.08\windows>usd.cmd usdcat R:\soft\usd\examples\Kitchen_set\Kitchen_set.usd
#usda 1.0
(
    defaultPrim = "Kitchen_set"
    upAxis = "Z"
)

def Xform "Kitchen_set" (
    kind = "assembly"
)
{
    def Xform "Arch_grp" (
        kind = "group"
    )

try this way
