    I am trying to get Dr Python version3.91 working on a Windows XP Svr Pak 2 laptop with the following versions installed:

    Python : 2.3.4
    wxPython: 2.4.2.4
    Dr Python: 3.91

    I made sure the drpython.pyw file was associated with the python.exe but all that happens is the command window opens, script runs, it goes away and that's all folks.

    I have read through a lot of post but unfortunately whenever people get their problems resolved they simply say thanks, it working and never leave any hints as to what they did to resolve the issues.

    Any ideas appreciated.

    Regards,

    Michael W.

     
    • DrPython requires wxPython to be 2.5.2.7 or higher.

      If you need wxPython 2.4.x, try drpython 2.4.6.

      OK,

      That was it, I uninstalled the version I had which was 2.4.x and downloaded the 2.5.3.1 version for python 2.3 and started the Dr Python installed with the 3.85 Windows installer. Everything works fine now.

      My many thanks!

      Regards,

        Just another FYI - I found that if you launch the drpython.py program instead of drpython.pyw, you'll sometimes get some useful debugging information in the console window.  I probably need to use that more often for some of my testing.
