this is very newbish, how do i run boa!
im on a windows machine, and im looking in 'C:\Python24\Lib\site-packages\wxPython\tools\boa'
what file is supposed to run the IDE?
boa.py which seems logical will not run!
what im i doing wrong
I am on Windows XP and have a shortcut pointing to this target:
What happens when you run boa.py?
Are .py files associated with Python?
.py files are associated with python, and anything ive made seemed to run fine
however, when i try to run boa.py a console window pops up, some text appears, and then it closes before i can read it
i noticed you have pyton 2.3, should i use 2.3 not 2.4?
alright, after a lot of double clicking, and some skillfull timeing of the 'print scr' key, i managed to take 2 screenshots of the window before it closes
i croped the important parts and uploaded them here
(sry for the messed one on top, i couldnt make it look any better than that)
as you can see it says there is no module name wxPython, but it installed itself into the wxPython directory!
hope this maybe helps somemore :)
It looks to me as if wxPython is not installed. You need to install this as Boa is dependent on it, you can get it from http://www.wxpython.org/ , make sure to get a 2.4 version and NOT 2.5 of wxPython (as Boa does not yet support that version).
BTW, instead of trying to catch things with "print scr" open a command prompt and run the command in that window so you can see what error messages fly by.
Hope this helps
ahhh, i had boa installed under "...python24/...wxpython", but wxpython was installed under python23, plus i had 2.5, so everything is cool now, thanks
BTW- is there a big disadvantage to using python 2.3 rather than 2.4?
i spoke to soon, it is now installed under wxpython 184.108.40.206, which is installed under python 2.3, and i am still getting the same error...
I would DEINSTALL (make sure that all your Python folders are gone) it all, then install Python, then wxPython and last Boa.
Python 2.4 is still in Beta, unless you need something in there (see http://www.python.org/2.4/NEWS.html\) I would use 2.3.
sweetness, i got rid of everthing, and reinstalled, and im now up and running
