If you just want to be able to import modules from the venv, and you know the path to it, it's simpler to just do:

    import sys
    sys.path.append(r"path to venv\Lib\site-packages")

Updating sys.executable is only necessary if you're going to use libraries that try to re-launch itself, but any embedding application is going to have to do that anyway.
