While importing pandas, I am getting OS error-

OSError: [WinError 193] %1 is not a valid Win32 application

**​Note-**I am already using windows-64 bit OS. Please help to rectify the error

Mostly these might help:

Random question, but…

You’ve not got two installs of Python by any chance? Seems odd to me that some of your modules are loading from ~\Untitled Folder 1\lib\site-packages\ and others from ~\AppData\Roaming\Python\Python38\site-packages\.

If you have got two instances of Python and they’re mismatched architecture - one is 32-bit and the other 64-bit - this might explain your issue.
