I have been trying to learn QGIS and I've been tasked to start with QGIS 3 so I have been going through Gary Sherman's PyQGIS Programmer's Guide.
I am currently using QGIS 2.99.0-Master, running Python 3.6.4, and am working with Script Runner 3.0.3.
I also have QGIS 2.18.15 which has Script Runner working fine. (I was midway going through an earlier edition (for QGIS 2.0) of the same guidebook before I got the newer one (for QGIS 3), which I then switched to.)
I have been trying to install ScriptRunner3 using QGIS's own plugin installer, but I keep getting some this error:
Couldn't load plugin 'scriptrunner3' due to an error when calling its classFactory() method ImportError: DLL load failed: The specified module could not be found. Traceback (most recent call last): File "C:/PROGRA~2/QGIS2.99/apps/qgis-dev/./python\qgis\utils.py", line 336, in startPlugin plugins[packageName] = package.classFactory(iface) File "C:/Users/zkang/AppData/Roaming/QGIS/QGIS3\profiles\default/python/plugins\scriptrunner3\__init__.py", line 24, in classFactory from .scriptrunner import ScriptRunner File "C:/PROGRA~2/QGIS2.99/apps/qgis-dev/./python\qgis\utils.py", line 664, in _import mod = _builtin_import(name, globals, locals, fromlist, level) File "C:/Users/zkang/AppData/Roaming/QGIS/QGIS3\profiles\default/python/plugins\scriptrunner3\scriptrunner.py", line 27, in import win32api File "C:/PROGRA~2/QGIS2.99/apps/qgis-dev/./python\qgis\utils.py", line 664, in _import mod = _builtin_import(name, globals, locals, fromlist, level) ImportError: DLL load failed: The specified module could not be found.

It might be worth to note that there was a previous error, where QGIS could not find
win32.api (despite me having installed it already) and I had to append the
PYTHONPATH environment variable to get around that. So the error at hand might just be very bad installation on my part.
