Dear Peter,
Thank you for your help.
Yes, I changed import to import rgs but I still receive

When I try to start the exe file I get 

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "rgs.pyc", line 561, in OnFileHistory
  File "pickle.pyc", line 1390, in load
  File "pickle.pyc", line 872, in load
  File "pickle.pyc", line 985, in load_string
LookupError: unknown encoding: string-escape

Can you please help again?
