[solved]Cannot import Dash?

Somehow I am unable to run my Dash in this new year. My company PC has been dormant through Christmas, and now I am getting an error when I try to import dash.

Can anyone help? :grimacing:

I did the rookie mistake of naming a .py script with the same name as a module hence messing up everything. Do not name your app ‘calender.py’ it will only ruing your day…
