I have not encountered this one myself, but here is what I found

Search for "pre_safe_import_module". There is a description of the method that might help you.
If that doesn't help I would personally look for libs that may be broken or have a potential of being incorrectly imported.

Hi Eshleron, thank you for taking time and looking in to it. I managed to resolve the issue.
I was unsure of the conflict so have installed python from scratch on a new virtual machine and tried creating exe without installing any packages.

  1. Installed packages that were only part of error logs.
  2. finally found out that reason for the failure was related to hidden import "babel.numbers".
  3. included that as parameter in hidden imports in auto-py-to-exe, and boom everything worked........
