Can't display graphviz tree in Jupyter Notebook

I'm trying to display a decision tree in Jupyter Notebook and I keep receiving the message:

CalledProcessError: Command '['dot.bat', '-Tsvg']' returned non-zero exit status 1

I'm using the following code:

from sklearn.datasets import load_iris 
from sklearn import tree
import graphviz
from IPython.display import SVG
iris = load_iris()
clf = tree.DecisionTreeClassifier()
fitted_clf =,
graph = graphviz.Source(tree.export_graphviz(fitted_clf, 
                               feature_names = iris.feature_names,
                               class_names = iris.target_names, 
                               filled = True, rounded = True, 
                               special_characters = True))

The Exception is raised in the last line when I try to use 'pipe'. I also tried:

graph.format = 'png'

instead of pipe but i keep on raising a similar exception:

CalledProcessError: Command '['dot.bat', '-Tpng', '-O', 'example']' returned non-zero exit status 1

Any idea of what is causing that behaviour? and how can I fix it?

(I'm using Python 3.5.2, sklearn 0.17.1, graphviz 0.8.2 and IPython 6.4.0)
