Python 2.5 and WXPython demo's


Hello,

I am new (very) to Python and have just down loaded the latest version
of Python (2.5) and WXPython (2.8).

For some reason I cannot get the WXPython demo to run at all. I run
windows XP and it can't find a program to run the demo. Any advice?
(apologies if this has been posted before).

The demo is a separate download nowadays. Do you mean you just can't
find it, or are you running it and does it give you some error message
that you feel we shouldn't be told about?

A little more information, please ...

regards

There *should* be a link in your startmenu in the wxPython group. I'm
quite positive, but not 100% sure. I think it has the snake-icon. But if
it's really not there (as you suggested), simply go the the folder you
installed the demo to and run demo.py.

Maybe there's a blunder in the installer for the 2.8 demo? Anyone?

Can't answer that, but on one from two (almost identical) PC's,
I had trouble too, the other went fluently.
On both PC's,
there was an older wxPython (2.6 I believe),
(which from what I've read should be no problem at all),
which wasn't overruled, by some specific file (wx.pth) to point to the
newest.
The effect is that the demo tries to run, can't find aiw?? or something
like that and crashes
(on fast PC's you actually just see a dos box flashing).
Editing the wx.pth file solved the problem.

cheers,

I haven't had any problems in with the demo...but then again, I
uninstalled the previous version before putting on the new demo. I did
have some minor problems choosing which version I wanted to run with
my scripts, but that has nothing to do with the demo.

Thanks for your reply, this is what I get when I click on the WXPthon
Icon:

Python Traceback Shell Stating:

<Error getting traceback - cant import traceback>ImportError: No
module named pywin.framework.startup

The Icon is the older python snake icon not the new coloured icon.

Thanks Andrew.
