New submission from Victor <victorywin5 at yahoo.com>:

Hi dear developers,
**Python 3.2 (r32:88445, Feb 20 2011, 21:29:02) [MSC v.1500 32 bit (Intel)] on win32** (windows vista; standard python installer for windows)
I am new to python. In the documentation I read that a .py file should run just on clicking it. 
I do so, but nothing happens (or at most, I can see something opening for just a fraction of second, then it immediately closes). Same when I try to open it (with the right-click open menu) with python, pythonw.
Is that normal? The way I do then, is to open the IDLE (python shell) and from there--"open file".
(Also, I don't manage to use the "from file_name import*" command (in python shell IDLE), but I guess that will be another report.)
