Starting a python GUI from another python GUI.

I'm an extreme newbie myself, however ...
Since you are developing in Windows, I have a sneaking suspicion that
its not pythonw generating the console window, but rather your call to
os.system(). In Python's win32API wrappers, they have wrapped a
function by the name of ShellExecute(). You can find the MSDN
documentation for this function here:
The Python documentation is here:
Using ShellExecute() **should** keep the console window from opening,
but no guarantees. (I don't have Windows, so I can't test my theory,
sorry.) Hope I've helped.
Have a wonderful day!
