problem with pythonw.exe

I have a tkinter application running on my windows xp work machine and I am
attempting to stop the console from appearing when the application runs.
I've researched around and the way to do this appears to be to use
pythonw.exe instead of python.exe. However when I try to run pythonw.exe
from the command prompt it simply does nothing. I can't find anything like
this where I've searched. I've tried reinstalling python. Pythonw.exe
appears to work when i run it through cygwin however I don't really want to
use cygwin for this application. Any idea as to what might be the problem?

Thanks in advance,
