IBM Websphere MQ Modular Input for Splunk installation : No module named pymqe

Hello,

I'm testing Splunk Enterprise 8.0.3 locally on my laptop (Windows 10 Home) and trying to set up the IBM MQ Input Modular (https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/3004/#/overview).

I followed the instructions on github repo of the add-on (https://github.com/jjjw420/splunk-ibm-websphere-mq-add-on)

The prerequisites are installed :
- IBM MQ Server - OK
- IBM MQ Client - OK
- pymqi-1.10.1 64bits - get and build OK
- mq_ta add-on copied in /etc/apps - OK
- The pymqi built libs are copied in /etc/apps/mq_ta/bin - OK

But, when I tested the import of pymqi with the embedded python3 (whichs is python 3.7.4) interpreter of Splunk, I got "ImportError: No module named pymqe" error.
However, when I tried the same import with python 3.8.2 installed on my system, everything was OK, no error.

Is it because the pymqi is not supported by python 3.7.4 or windows 10 ?
Is there anyway to tell Splunk to use another python version other than the one that came with the product ?

Thanks in advance for your help
