New submission from Darren <darrenb at sybase.com>:
The python installer should register the proper file type extensions. Files with .py extensions should have an "open" action associated with the python interpreter and there should also be an "Edit with IDLE" action associated with .py files as well. I was able to configure both of these things manually on Windows XP but can not figure out how setup the "Edit with IDLE" action on Windows 7.
FWIW: I can run this command from a dos box and get the desired effect.
"C:\Python32\pythonw.exe" "C:\Python32\Lib\idlelib\idle.pyw" -n -e "Test.py"
and I expect the command to be registered with the .py file extension would be
"C:\Python32\pythonw.exe" "C:\Python32\Lib\idlelib\idle.pyw" -n -e "%1"
The installer should just do this so python files have reasonable actions associated with them as soon as the install is complete.
