Hello, I'm starting with ROS, I installed it (Noetic version) on Windows 10 successfully and I am currently following ROS tutorials. When I reached "Understanding ROS Topics" and run "rosrun rqt_graph rqt_graph" it opens the GUI but it's empty. This is the error showed in the command line:

PluginHandlerDirect._restore_settings() plugin "rqt_graph/RosGraph#0" raised an exception: Traceback (most recent call last): File "c:\opt\ros\noetic\x64\lib\site-packages\", line 1912, in create stdout_data, stderr_data, process = call_graphviz( File "c:\opt\ros\noetic\x64\lib\site-packages\", line 129, in call_graphviz process = subprocess.Popen( File "", line 854, in __init__ File "", line 1307, in _execute_child FileNotFoundError: [WinError 2] The system cannot find the file specified

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

Traceback (most recent call last): File "c:\opt\ros\noetic\x64\lib\site-packages\qt_gui\", line 121, in _restore_settings self._plugin.restore_settings(plugin_settings_plugin, instance_settings_plugin) File "c:\opt\ros\noetic\x64\lib\site-packages\rqt_graph\", line 260, in restore_settings self._refresh_rosgraph() File "c:\opt\ros\noetic\x64\lib\site-packages\rqt_graph\", line 289, in _refresh_rosgraph self._update_graph_view(self._generate_dotcode()) File "c:\opt\ros\noetic\x64\lib\site-packages\rqt_graph\", line 308, in _generate_dotcode return self.dotcode_generator.generate_dotcode( File "c:\opt\ros\noetic\x64\lib\site-packages\rqt_graph\", line 914, in generate_dotcode dotcode = dotcode_factory.create_dot(dotgraph) File "c:\opt\ros\noetic\x64\lib\site-packages\qt_dotgraph\", line 175, in create_dot dot = graph.create_dot() File "c:\opt\ros\noetic\x64\lib\site-packages\", line 1722, in new_method return self.create( File "c:\opt\ros\noetic\x64\lib\site-packages\", line 1922, in create raise OSError(*args) FileNotFoundError: [WinError 2] "dot" not found in path.

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

I would appreciate it if someone could help me.
