It says... NOTHING! It just DISAPPEARS!

JUST FOR TO MAKE SURE I put in the same directory (Python's root)
testme.py file with this simplest content:

print 'ONE'
print 'TWO'
print 'THREE'

Then I run it EXACTLY the same way as I run socket6.py:

D:\>python23\python d:\python23\testme.py [Enter]
ONE
TWO
THREE

D:\>

AND OF COURSE CONSOLE WINDOW DID NOT CLOSE AFTER THAT !
BUT IT REALLY DISAPPEARS IN CASE OF socket6.py !
(but only AFTER I double-click my .vbs file in Windows Explorer)
