You need to create a shortcut on the Windows 7 desktop (not sure of the
particulars for 7, but it starts with a right-click). Either while
creating the shortcut, or afterwards (with another right-click on the
shortcut icon, and selecting Properties [hopefully that was not
renamed]) have the startup directory be where ever your script lives,
and the command line should read C:\Python27\pythonw myapp_tk.py.
*disclaimer: I haven't used Windows 7 yet, so some details may vary.
