#136 Preferences Error


When I try to run DrPython.pyw it "stops working" and I recieve Error report

Preferences Error
Error Changing to Default Directory: "C:/Users/Sufes/Desktop/DrPython"

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:\Games\DrPython\drpython.py", line 377, in __init__
<type 'exceptions.WindowsError'>: [Error 2] The system cannot find the file specified: 'C:/Users/Sufes/Desktop/DrPython'

I tried find where to change the main dir, but didn't succeed
So, it works just when located on my desktop... :-/

    Hello sufes,

    It is on the first page in DrPython -> Preferences -> General -> Default Preferences Directory. Here you can change the preferences directory.

    Does this directory exist? Do you have the rights to access the directory?

    This dir does not exist, there is just bitmaps, documentation, examples and tools
    I downloaded DrPython_3.11.3.zip

    when I run drpython.pyw (just) the icon on the taskbar shows. I can open by right click Python Shell. It's the same with drpython.py but it opens command line...

    Hmm, I don't understand, if you say:
    "This dir does not exist, there is just bitmaps, documentation, examples and

    Then the dir does actually exist. Is this only a problem with DrPython or in other Python programs too?

    Some additional questions:
    What OS do you have? Obiviously windows, but windows vista, .. ?
    What python version?
    what wxPython Version?
    The wxPyhton demo is working (demo.py) ?

    Sorry for cannot help any more at this time.
