The error you’re encountering indicates an issue with loading the SQLite DLL in your Anaconda environment. This is a common issue with certain Anaconda installations on Windows.

  1. Update Anaconda: Make sure your Anaconda distribution is up-to-date. You can update Anaconda using conda update --all in the Anaconda Prompt.
  2. Reinstall SQLite: Try reinstalling SQLite within your Anaconda environment. Use conda install sqlite in the Anaconda Prompt.

Anaconda says I have the package installed. I also tried removing Jupyter and resintalling it. This also fails.
(base) C:\Users\dleonard>conda install sqlite
