Which python version should we use in RV 2021.0.0?

Hi,

Which python version should we use in RV 2021.0.0 ?
In the software folder, I see python2 and python3 folders.

We are switching to python3 so that’s the version we would like to use. But when running it with python3 env, I get an python error and path are pointing to rv_install/python2/lib/python2.7/…

Is there a way (env var I assume) to easily switch it to python3?.

Cheers,
Kevin

Hi Kevin,

Python 3 support, it’s currently opt-in via defining the RV_PYTHON3 environment variable.

Hi Alain,

Thank you for your answer.
That’s what I was just finding out in the Release notes.

For those wondering, it’s using python 3.7.6.

Cheers,
Kevin
