Python 2 scripts do not work in Maya 2023



I have many scripts which are working well in Maya 2020. 


I need start Maya 2022 in this way, or my python scripts are not working anymore:

My Maya 2022 shortcut, so my scripts are working again: "C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Maya2022\bin\maya.exe" -pythonver 2


But I have the same problem in Maya 2023, my scripts do not work, and nothing happen if I try launch Maya in the same way:

"C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Maya2023\bin\maya.exe" -pythonver 2


I see Maya 2023 does not support anymore python 2. So I need to convert the scripts.


I saw many youtube videos about this, even I see the python files in my maya install folder (pip, 2to3...) but when I run the scripts I got always this error: '2to3' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.


Do you know the solution?

If you cant fix it yourself. Post the scripts in a Tech forum or find a TD.
