I haven't had much luck with Boa Constructor either. Here's a forum
post on the same issue that might help you though:

http://www.nabble.com/HOW-TO-START-BOAConstructor--t2545395.html

You may want to try wxGlade, VisualWx, PythonCard, Dabo or Stani's
Python Editor (SPE). Stani's, wxGlade, PythonCard and Dabo are
mentioned often on the wxPython user's group.
