what is your approach to installing it? Are you using
pip and on which OS are you?
pip is still not delivered with Cinema's Python, but now supported in R23 (but for macOS it is broken at the moment). To install it, you have to first download get-pip.py and then run it with
c4dpy and the command line (make sure to have admin rights in the app):
cd c:\program files\maxon\R23 # or where ever your cinema r23 is sitting
c:\Program Files\Maxon\R23>c4dpy %USERPROFILE%\Desktop\get-pip.py # assuming you saved get-pip to your desktop
then you can install via pip
pySide, which gave me the following output.
c:\Program Files\Maxon\R23>c4dpy -m pip install `PySide2`

Which is somewhat what I expected to happen, due to
c4dpy not being on
PATH and also deviating from the
python.exe signature. You can try to duct-tape this into place, but
PySide2 is not supported by us, so you are unfortunately on your own here.
