Hey! I am trying to install GraphViz so that I can start plotting some graphs in a python notebook in our Azure Synapse Analytics space. I managed to install the pypi package but I also need to install the system executable. What would be the best way to do so ? I have tried running User's image

but I needed sudo access so I have tried User's image

but it doesn't seem that this supported either. Can you point me in the right direction on how to install the executable so I can use graphviz ? A lot of libraries rely on it as a backend so it's currently blocking multiple scenarios for our team. Thanks in advance for your help!

    - Thanks for the question and using MS Q&A platform.

    You can use pip and %pip commands to manage libraries in the Notebook code cells.
