Try calling your modules *.pyw instead of *.py.
(BTW: I wouldn't call the command prompt useless..Once you run your code as
*.pyw any exceptions that you do not particularly catch and output via a
Tkinter message box will never surface. So I'd leave the *.pyw suffix alone
during the entire process of writing/debugging, and rename the when *ready*
