I frequently use a batch file wrapper.  Typically it has a long
friendly name for others in my (non-IT) department, and calls the
actual python script in a subfolder, often with arguments.  The last
line of the batch file is usually a pause command.

As an alternative, I have a couple of main procedures wrap a try/except
around the entire script, and if an error occurs, then logs the details
before quitting.  I suppose you could also print the error, and add a
call raw_input() so its visible before the window closes.

Hope that helps,
