New submission from T Rink <tr03 at jm.rinkleff.com>:
My problem is that this evening, the message "IDLE's subprocess didn't make connection. Either IDLE can't start a subprocess or personal firewall software is blocking the connection." appears after I hit F5 to run a file I am editing.
The program briefly worked on and off ... but after ca. 10 minutes it stopped for good.
I have tried searhcing for solutions, but found nothing that seems to work.
Windows Vista 32
Python 2.7 (downloaded a week ago)
New User to Python. Amatuer/Hobby Programmer
SOLUTIONS I HAVE TRIED
-Tried solution "kill process in task manager". No effect. Process was usually already closed by me anyway, but killing it did not help either.
-Tried solution "repair via .MSI" file. No change.
-Tried to tell Windows Firewall to ignore python and pythonw, that they were acceptable. No change.
-Would prefer not to "Scrap IDLE" as I just started! (Also I do not want to write Python only in Notepad and use command lines. As much as I love the command line, I do not want that anymore)
-Started to try to use workaround "-n" flag when starting IDLE.
a) I would prefer a Solution and not a Workaround that hinders the program before I am started.
b) I am new to Python and Idle. Windows Vista hides the links, it is not clear to me how Python is setup and I am still working on understanding how Python operates ... that is pain enough at the moment....
-Either a useful suggestion to get IDLE to work properly and as it should.
-Or a good recommendation for a universal and Idiot-Friendly alternative Python programming environment. It should be simple, user-friendly, reliable and suitable for novices to experiment (i.e. no complicated setup!)
(FYI:I spent two years learning Java, and finally canned it, because I got sick of spending my free-time trying to debug and decipher workarounds to what should have been a simple solution! grrrrrrr!)
Thanks to any who can help.
