I'm a novice with programming and I have just started to learn Python. I found about DrPython and downloaded the zip and unzipped to c:\drpython-161
I'm on Windows XP and already have installed Python25(under C:\python25) and Wxpython (C:\Python25\Lib\site-packages\wx-2.7.2-msw-unicode\wxPython). When I double click on drpython.pyw A small Window opens giving me the choice of Beginner and Advanced.
However, when I click on either one of them nothing happens. I then opened the drpython.pyw using IDLE and ran the code in the file and I get the following error messages:
Traceback (most recent call last):

TypeError: Expected a 2-tuple of integers or a wxPoint object.
What am I doing wrong? Is it that the versions of Python or WxPython are not compatible with DrPython?
Any help will be appreciated.
I write instead of Dan (Project leader).
You do nothing wrong, you are not the first one, who reports this.
I try to contact Dan. Maybe he could correct that error, but I cannot
I am for myself on Win XP, wxPy 2.6 (ansi) and Python 2.4.
Robin Dunn changed something in wxPy 2.7 and it isn't compatible anymore.
If you haven't tried it yet, you might want to un-install the version161 version. The download and install the latest version of DrPython v163. Here's the link:
I installed Dr. Python on Windows XP and along with Python 25 and wxPython 22.214.171.124 Seems to be working fine.
yes wxPython 2.6 and 2.8 is a kind of incompatible.
