I installed DrPython 3.10.13 with :
wxPython Version: 22.214.171.124
wxPython Platform: wxMSW, ansi, wx-assertions-on
Python Version: 2.3.4.final
Python Platform: win32
The problem is that Drpython frozen when I select the root directory (C:\) in the "open file" dialog.
I have the same problem in two different windows 98 machines.
How can I solve this problem?
I suspect you have the drpython file open dialog, istn't it?
(Preferences => File Dialog => use wx.FileDialog is unchecked?)
How do you select the root dir?
using the arrow up icons?
using home icon?
type in c:\ ?
hmm, 126.96.36.199.. wxPy 2.6 WinXP looks good
Also with wx.FileDialog i can't duplicate this error.
Frozen?: you have to kill the task?
do you have some non-ascii letters in your filenames
in the root dir?

I have tried all of this, with the same result.

I just try using the wx.FileDialog (didn't notice this option before), and it works OK. I will use this option.
There is another detail related with win98, I think it is not related to my problem, but I mention it anyway :
In my manchines with win98 the enviromental variable $HOME is not defined. This causes a problem because drpython run this :
self.userhomedirectory = os.path.expanduser("~")
I defined HOME in my autoexec.bat and solved the problem.
