Build Error: wxpython 4.1.0 for Python 3.8.2 on Windows

I just wanted to make this thread to see if there was an easy fix for wxPython 4.1.0 that the dev team could fix. Seems to break on extracting the source code of the extension itself. I downgraded the version of wxPython in my project to 4.0.7.post2 and this built successfully.

Hey @justin-charron – I’ll let the build team know. If the older version is working, it just might be a case of moving forward any patches to that old version to the newer version to get it to build in the system.
