Some how I've managed to break my spyder executable in the clone I I have for ArcGIS Pro.  No big deal, right?  I jsut used conda to uninstall it and then used ArcGIS Pro to reinstall the package.  But, it still tosses this error:

Again, no big deal...  I open a command window in that environment and and run spyder --reset and all I get is:

And no spyder.  

What the h-e-double-hockey-stick?

That should just about do it....

You keep sending messages to my twin... I don't get them.

That just does the reset.

Does it run from your shortcut? or did you make one?

I don't use clones so I can't narrow that down as an issue

I gotta change get the twin thing figured out....

I try to run it from the short cut and I get that error: if I open a command window in that clone I get the same error.  My last resort was to create a new clone and install spyder there, and that did the trick.  I don't have any idea what went wrong initially but it's been that sort of week for me.

That should just about do it....

Just delete the other clone then... assuming they completely go away

BTW  were you updating to 4.1.4 ???

I have not updated to 4.1.4 but I have a 4.1.3 install in a miniconda environment I created.  I'm keeping the arcgis pro environment as close to pristine as I can in an effort to avoid what just happened.  So much for that idea....

That should just about do it....
