I followed this on Windows 10:

Which says I want to run this:

According to the following post, that's a documentation error
And instead, I should run setupvars.bat under C:\Program Files (x86)\IntelSWTools\openvino_2019.1.148\bin . OK, Done.
The page https://docs.openvinotoolkit.org/latest/_docs_IE_DG_Samples_Overview.html says I should go to <INSTALL_DIR>/deployment_tools/inference_engine/samples/python_samples for the inference sample. It's actually in <INSTALL_DIR>/deployment_tools/inference_engine/samples/python
No module named 'cv2'
pip install opencv-python
No module named 'openvino'. D'Oh. That's what I thought I just installed.
Insight: I've been using powershell. Just try CMD. It works!
We appreciate your feedback! I have passed this information to the development team to update the documentation.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
