I've tried both from the command line and double clicking the file
name (I have the proper associations set up). I've tried running
k:\python\python, I've tried starting python and typing the
file in one line at a time, I've even tried waving a dead chicken over
my computer. No luck.

Actaully it doesn't return at all.....ever.
If I close the root window, I get a messsage from windows that says :
"Windows can't shut this program down automatically. It is recommended
that you close the program....bla bla bla".

I've looked, there's no icon on the task bar. I've check through the
task manager and there's nothing there either.
>has some more information on the mainloop function.
I went to this site and typed in the example file (it was basically
the same one that I was trying to run). I still get nothing.
Any other suggestions?
Thank you for trying to help ,
