ActivePython Windows .bat all broken

Posted by on 2017-06-02 01:25

Just installed the lastest version of ActivePython on my Windows 10.
Can't use any off ipython, jupyter, ... out of the box from a cmd.
Please help me finding a global solution to my problem,
I only succeeded to "hack" the install.


Fired a cmd.exe shell.

> ipython
echo off
python.exe non module ipython found.

Same for almost every packages I tried.

First thing:
Please put an @ before "echo off" to avoid prompting => "@echo off"

Second thing:
All .bat shortcuts seems to be broken.
In the case of ipython, the command line is
"python.exe -m ipython %1 ..."

Worked when changing to "-m IPython". But is it intended ?

Other "hack" solution, .bat files maybe supposed to load their "*" counterpart,
in this case naming modules with a dash is not really a good idea.

Thanks for your replies

The 2716 release (next) is expected to fix the batch file problems.
