    I have a perplexing issue, I have four users set up on a W7 computer.
    The program runs fine for all users except the admin user who needs it
    for school assignments.

    It's not a firewall issue as I've added localhost for pythomw.exe as allow.

    I've done some data dumps using sysinternals process monitor and the
    working users create a 7.8mb dump file and the file for the broken user
    is only 1.04mb. I can send the zipped data dumps (XML) 384kb if someone
    could have a look.

    Python 2.6

    Thanks

    declaimed the following in gmane.comp.python.general:

    > AppPath=C:\Program Files\Utilities\Python Scripting v2.62\pythonw.exe


    That's an interesting path... Did the install path for Python (from
    either python.org or activestate) change that much from 2.5.x, or is
    that a custom install path (and is it the same path for the accounts it
    works in). Especially as there is no "v2.62" to my knowledge... a 2.6.2,
    OTOH...

    Now... I did change the upper level directory for mine (E:\; my C:
    partition is rather packed, and I tend to install a lot of packages from
    my user account), but the installer named top level was
    "\Python25\pythonw.exe"

    I've added the folder directory to my PATH statement and also tried
    installing to the root but it doesn't make a difference. The 2.62 should
    be 2.64 my bad..

    Hi Rhodri, Python Command-Line works fine. Are toy recommending to
    invoke IDLE from there or from windows command line? Sorry I'm not to up
    on Python is there a command that would run IDLE from command?

    If I run idle.py -c -d

    I get idle is not defined.

    Thanks

    I fixed it for some reason deleting my idlerc folder allows it to work
