The association of Pythonw.exe with the .py extension is wrong.
Pythonw is a Python without a console, so it most probably
does what it should do: execute a script and vanish.
You should change the .py association back to python.exe .
Pythonw is there for running COM server processes, applications
which create their own windows, and so on.
