    Hi all

    I am a Newbie to the world of Python, wxPython and Boa. Please
    forgive me if there is a really obvious answer to this one.

    I am trying to get Python, wxPython and Boa all to install on my
    Windows XP machine.

    I have both Python and wxPython running. However, when I launch Boa I
    get an error message;

    An 'Error On Startup' dialog/message box is displayed that says;
    'module' object has no attribute 'NotebookSizer'
    (Output on the console window is at the end of this message incase
    that helps.....)

    I click OK and everything closes.

    I have the following setup;

    installed using python-2.5.msi from

    wxPython for Python2.5
    installed using

    Boa Constructor
    installed using boa-constructor-0.4.4.win32.exe

    Does anyone have any ideas, thoughts as to what the problem might be ?

    The only thing I'm wondering is that instead of installing on my c:
    drive in installed on my d: drive ????

    Thanks in advance

    I haven't had much luck with Boa Constructor either. Here's a forum
    post on the same issue that might help you though:

    You may want to try wxGlade, VisualWx, PythonCard, Dabo or Stani's
    Python Editor (SPE). Stani's, wxGlade, PythonCard and Dabo are
    mentioned often on the wxPython user's group.
