Hi folks, I'm brand new and having trouble getting grpcio installed at the required version for a local venv install on my PC. First it fails to build the wheel, then it tries to install using and both times I get a 3000+ line wall of text from VC++ compiler. I can "pip install grpcio" and I get version 1.51.1 in no-time-flat but the dagster/dagit requirements want version 1.47 and will uninstall the newer version. Win10 22H2, Python 3.11.1, pip 22.3.1. What am I missing? TIA

It’s a build problem with grpcio and not a dagster issue. Use python 3.7 and it will build without issue.

It's def a build problem. 😄 I'll try 3.7, thanks.
