Fail to run a compiled julia app on another machine

Update: I think this problem may not be solved unless the absolute path used in PyCall was fixed

Hi, I am getting this error when I run a compiled Julia app on another win10 machine. I found an almost same problem issued 4 days ago here. My system is win10, the error message is as follows.

fatal: error thrown and no exception handler available.
InitError(mod=:PyCall, error=ErrorException("could not load library "C:\Users\JerryYang\.julia\conda\3\python39.dll"
The specified module could not be found. "))

It seems that this program is searching an absolute directory on my machine: "C:\Users\JerryYang\.julia\conda\3\python39.dll". I thought for a build binary file, there should be no files to be needed under directory of machine where it was compiled, and the fixed absolute path seems really strange.

I guess this problem was caused by PyCall's non-relocatability. Other packages don’t seem to have this problem. The compilation process went well, and there is no problem when it was running on my own machine.

The code looks like this:

module Demo
function julia_main()::Cint
    len = length(ARGS)
    if len == 0
        println("An option is needed!")
        println("Type --help or -h to see available options.")
    else
        if ARGS[1] == "--help" || ARGS[1] == "-h"
            print("""Demo.exe <options>
             -h, --help  Print something
             -1   Print something
             -2   Print something
            """)
        elseif ARGS[1] == "-1"
            println()
            include("file1.jl")
        elseif ARGS[1] == "-2"
            println()
            include("file2.jl")
        else
            println("Invalid option!")
        end
    end
    return 0
end
if abspath(PROGRAM_FILE) == @__FILE__
    julia_main()
end
end # module

file1.jl and file2.jl are added in the directory of Demo.exe. I’m new to julia’s project structure and app compilation, using include() here may not be a good way of doing this (and I also want to know about the proper way of directly running another julia file like a script rather than using or import), but it can work on my machine.
