Your post is off-topic for this mailinglist.

This mailinglist (python-ideas) is for proposing/discussing ideas for
improving/modifying the Python language.

For general discussion and questions about using Python, please post
to python-list/comp.lang.python instead. It is accessible from either:

Further, your question is quite vague in not stating *how* the code
isn't working.
You may wish to read the following guidance before posting to
python-list: http://catb.org/esr/faqs/smart-questions.html

Finally, here's a less redundant version of your code with two obvious
errors fixed:
prys = 0
# Windows file paths either use / or \\ or raw string literals
f = open('C:/Documents and Settings/ZU1TN/Desktop/Nommers/K55.txt', 'r')
pr = f.readline()
pr = int(pr)
tp = pr - prys # which simplifies to: tp = pr
f.close() # you were missing the parens
print tp

Not offering cheers,
