C:\Python25\Lib\IDLELIB\idle.pyw won't start

Hi,

   I upgraded from 2.4 to 2.5 and am unable to start an 2.5 idle window.

This is the command I have been using:
   C:\Python24\pythonw.exe C:\Python24\Lib\IDLELIB\idle.pyw -n -c 
execfile('C:\\Python24\\i')

And this is the command that doesn't start anything:
   C:\Python25\pythonw.exe C:\Python25\Lib\IDLELIB\idle.pyw -n -c 
execfile('C:\\Python25\\i')

The command is exactly the same with the digit 5 in the place of 4. All 
paths and names are correct. C:\\Python25\\i sets up sys.path but seems 
irrelevant, as taking the execfile () part out doesn't change anything. 
The OS is Windows ME. The download of 2.5 finished with a warning saying 
that 2.5 was the highest version for Windows 9* Any tips?

Thanks

Frederic
