Right... that was it... it's just been so long since I messed with paths.

What *exactly* do you mean by "added python.exe to [your] path"?  You
should add *the directory that contains python.exe* to your path.

What is the output of the "path" command in the command-prompt window
where you're attempting to run Python?

(Urgh.. attempting to dredge up long forgotten MS-DOS crud...)
