hi @nitin. So, this isn’t a Pinecone error, it’s coming from the Python install you’re using. Specifically, the version of numpy you have installed. add_dll_directory is a Windows only method, but Lambda runs Linux. Check that you’re installing the Linux version of Python and the related dependencies.

There’s a thread on stackoverflow about the problem.

Hi Support,

I resolved the issue using Ubuntu to run my code and yes this is a install issue.

Thanks for your help.
