    Hi @byang ,

    You can run a CPython terminal from AEDT following the steps:

    1. Create a virtual environment with PyAEDT installed (pip install pyaedt). If you are using the batch file from the PyAEDT documentation, the virtual environment will be at "C:\Users\slopez\AppData\Roaming\pyaedt_env_ide"
    2. Open AEDT, and select Tools>External Tools.
    3. Create new content (Add). I called the menu "CPython CL" and the command is: cmd /k C:\Users\slopez\AppData\Roaming\pyaedt_env_ide\Scripts\activate.bat

    Finally, in Tools you will see the new button, which will open a CPython terminal with the specific virtual environment:
