        And that statement tells us you are trying to run from within some
IDE/editor which is trapping Python exceptions and producing a dialog box
for them.

        Instead, save your script (if you haven't yet) as a file (whatever.py).

        Open a command line interpreter/shell.

        Navigate (cd ...) to where you saved the file

        Type "python whatever.py"

        Copy and paste the results of the CLI/Shell window.
