Where ir the python used by platformio

Hi, i’m just wondering where lives the python installation used by platformio is in order to reuse it and avoid reinstalling sparely.
If anybody knows, it would be really useful!
Thank you very much in advance!

Edited to fix my atroshus speling mistakes! :wink:

On my Linux box, it’s in /home/norman/.platformio/penv/bin where python3.8 and python3 are symbolic links to python and that itself is a sym link to my actual installed version of python3.

On Windows, I suspect something similar under your user account, probably c:\users\your_name\.platformio\penv\bin.

I believe, if python is not installed already, PlatformIO will install a usable version, but I may be mistaken.
