[Idle-dev] Unsolved problem.

```Hi,

Does anyone know how to do the following:

# HiLo.py

import random
z = random.randint(1, 100)
loopy = 0
countdown = 15
while loopy < 15:
loopy = loopy + 1
countdown=countdown-1
print
guess = int(raw_input('Enter an integer: '))
print
print "[Countdown %i]" % (countdown)
print "-" * 89
print
if guess < z:
print "[Go higher]".rjust(94)
if guess > z:
print "[Go lower]".rjust(94)
if guess == z:
print
print "At last!"
print "If you want to play again press 'r' then enter, otherwise 'x' then enter to exit"
run = raw_input("\n'r' to run again or 'e' to exit ")
if run == "e":
print "Bye till next time..."
break
elif run == "r":
continue
if countdown == 0:
print "Looks like you've run out of turns..."
print "If you want to play again press 'r' then enter, otherwise 'x' then enter to exit"
run = raw_input("\n'r' to run again or 'e' to exit ")
if run == "e":
print "Bye till next time..."
break
elif run == "r":
z = random.randint(1, 100)
loopy = 0
countdown = 15
continue

Save the above as HiLo.py in site packages then put a shortcut onto desktop and when it's double - clicked it comes up NOT in a black dos window but as it would if one were to run it from the IDLE i.e., white background with blue characters.

Does anyone know how to do this?
