Symptoms: IDLE (Python GUI) fails to start from START Menu
Run IDLE (Python GUI) from START menu and get Window flash but nothing else. IDLE fails to start in a ActiveState Python 3.4.1 installation.
However, the Python Interactive shell runs properly from the START menu.
This is a Windows 7 64-bit installation.
I installed ActivePython-22.214.171.124-win64-x64.msi (community edition) that was downloaded directly from the web site.
Ultimately, I installed from an Administrator privileged command line window using the msiexec /i command.
Would it be possible to create a version of the Python 2.7 directory that doesn't install the Python27.dll into the c:\windows\system directory. It makes it harder to have other Python distributions installed on the same machine.
I have installed Pyknon on my Mac using 'pip'. This all worked and I can access the extra commands by including an import statement.
However, Komodo does not find the library to import in 'from pyknon.genmidi import Midi'.
I am trying to achieve a robust Python 3 installation.
This is for learning and personal use only.
My starting point is a MacBook Air with OS X 10.9.2.
From the terminal window Python 2.7.5 works fine.
I installed Python 3.3.5 from python.org
IDLE sees Tcl/Tk 8.5.9 which it reports to be potentially unstable
I installed the recommended ActiveTcl 8.6.1
Python 3.3.5 still sees Tcl/Tk 8.5.9.
Finding that the binding is supposed to be dynamic upon installation I uninstalled Python 3.3.5
I reinstalled Python 3.3.5
Python 3.3.5 still sees Tcl/Tk 8.5.9.
I uninstalled Python 3.3.5 again
Just successfully activated my ActiveState Komodo 8.x and tried to write my first interactive shell program. But when I navigated to Tools -> Interactive Shell -> Start New Python3 Shell, viola! I get series of traceback something looking like:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/root/Komodo-IDE-8/lib/support/dbgp/bin/py3_dbgp", line 305, in
sys.exit( main(sys.argv) )

I am a beginner and interested in Python. I've downloaded the 3.3 version and everything seems to be OK. I would like to try PyScripter as an IDE and would like to know if there is any reason I can't download it, install it, and use it with the ActiveState version of Python.
There seem to be multiple problems with 3.3 and 3.2 ActiveState Pythons on Mavericks.
So far I've found that
1) readline needs some low level patch in end user's computers, which end users of Python application are unlikely to have skill set or desire to do.
2) python GUI features don't draw or refresh correctly, for example pop-up tooltips in tkinter don't draw text at all, tree view open/close clicks only refresh seconds or minutes later, etc. Not sure if this is in Python or the 8.6 separate tcl install.
I'm currently running ActivePython 126.96.36.199 on my XP Pro host.
After downloading and running the installer to 188.8.131.52, I get the following error message:
"Windows Installer: The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed. This can occur if the Windows Installer is not correctly installed."
Has someone seen this, and knows what to do?
i'm running Wine 1.6 on Xubuntu 12.04 and can't find ActivePython 2.7 at the Wine menu. In addition, when I try to install PyCrypto 2.1, an error message pops up: "Python version 2.7 required which was not found in the registry.
Here's what I did to install ActivePython (if it's relevant): a) downloaded AP, b) run "tar xzf ActivePython-184.108.40.206-linux-x86.tar.gz" + "cd ActivePython-220.127.116.11-linux-x86" + "./install.sh" in terminal.
can you please help? thanks!
i'm building an app that embeds python
the debug build won't even link because "python27_d.lib" does not exist.
