[New-bugs-announce] [issue2191] SubProcess Startup error

New submission from Madhusudan SK:

After installing the Python.msi x86 installer on an Intel P4 machine 
running Windows XP SP2, I am getting the error "Subprocess startup 
error" and when i click OK on the dialog box the Python IDLE closes. I 
do not have Microsoft Visual Studio installed on my system but do have 
the .NET framework 1.1 installed. The reason code in the pop up says 
either the IDLE cannot start a subprocess or a firewall is blocking the 
connection. Is it necessary that the anitvirus/firewall software needs 
to be disabled before installing Python 3.0 or is it the case as 
mentioned in the http://www.python.org/download/releases/3.0/ "Read 
this first" section i.e. python30.dll cannot be installed in system32
