When I ran quantum_neural_net.py, I got:
Traceback (most recent call last):

I do not know the reason for calling:
qchem = entry.load()
when importing pennylane
I use Windows 10
Thanks for reaching out! Unfortunately, some of the underlying libraries used in Pennylane-Qchem (namely, PySCF) are not supported in Windows. To use qchem on Windows we typically recommend to use a Linux-based system such as Windows Subsystem for Linux, or even something like Colab.
entry.load() call, this is used to load up the qchem module if it is available. You can see the context in the source here.
That all being said, the
quantum_neural_net.py demo doesn’t actually require PennyLane-Qchem. If you’ve installed
qchem manually, uninstall it, verify that you can import PennyLane, and try again to run the demo. Also, ensure you’re using the latest version of PennyLane (0.13), as there was an update a few months ago that should have made PySCF optional on Windows to enable a smooth installation that includes qchem (albeit without some of the functionality afford by PySCF).
Please let us know how it goes, and if you have any further questions!
Thanks @glassnotes for your help! After removing Pennylane and Pennylane-Qchem, and then reinstalling Pennylane, the program works.
Glad to hear it, thanks for letting us know!
After uninstall also, ModuleNotFoundError: No module named ‘openfermionpyscf’ keep on coming
That sounds strange! Could you perhaps post the entire traceback? It would indicate that something is still using
openfermionpyscf, which should not be the case.
