Your code looks fine to me. Are you running it from IDLE or PythonWin?
If so, don't be surprised that nothing is displayed immediately; you
may need to trigger a repaint. So I recommend to run it in the console
version first.

Next, you probably have to start debugging through the Python code, as
well. You'll need the debug version of Python for that so VC++ can
locate the source code properly.
