[New-bugs-announce] [issue7817] Pythonw.exe fails to start

New submission from Dan <10equals8 at gmail.com>:

Pythonw.exe refuses to start on my Windows 7 x64 computer.  I don't get any kind of error message (i.e. "pythonw.exe has stopped working"), it simply doesn't open.  python.exe works fine.

Attached is a Windows Debugger analysis log, I can also provide a Process Monitor log if it would be helpful (shows all the file registry access attempts by the program).
