    The error you're facing is often due to a mismatch in the version or architecture (32-bit vs 64-bit) of Python and Gurobi, or a missing DLL file. Here's a brief guide to resolve it:

    1. Check Gurobi Installation: Ensure the DLL file exists at 'C:\gurobi1101\win64\bin\gurobi110.dll'. If not, reinstall Gurobi.

    2. Match Python Architecture: Verify both Python and Gurobi are either 32-bit or 64-bit. Use python -c "import platform; print(platform.architecture())" to check Python's architecture.

    3. Set Environment Variables: Add Gurobi's bin directory to the PATH environment variable, so your system can locate the Gurobi DLLs.

    4. IDE Configuration: If using an IDE like PyCharm, ensure it's set to use the Python interpreter where Gurobi is installed.

    5. Virtual Environments: If you're using one, activate it and confirm Gurobi is installed there.

    6. Gurobi and Python Compatibility: Ensure your Gurobi version is compatible with your Python version.

    Further to Gurobot's last point please see Which Python versions are supported by Gurobi?

    Once you have your license setup you shouldn't actually need a Gurobi installation (such as C:\gurobi1101\) to work with Gurobi in Python.  Gurobipy is a self contained package.
