Here's the result of doing what Martin asked (and then launching the interpreter, to confirm that it's the 2.5.4 version that I installed on Thursday just before submitting my original bug report).
C:\PYTHON25 is the first item in the PATH.
C:\Python25\Lib\idlelib\idle.py exists, and IDLE launches properly when I double-click its icon on the desktop. But Python scripts (including idle.py and all of my own) do not show the Python icon.
Renaming .idlerc has no effect except that IDLE now doesn't have a list of recent files. Or did you mean to try this after installing one of the later (2.6) versions of Python, under which IDLE would not launch?
Is this looking like a registry problem?
